Standard Output references the method in which programs send out information. On standard console programs, standard output usually prints to the console window, but not always. Standard output can be easily redirected to a file, a printer, a device, or can be ignored by redirecting it to a trash location. On Linux systems, standard output uses the file descriptor 1.
