Typing "why" into the command prompt yields a random answer. My question is: WHen I execute "why", how can I store the output string as a variable?

This is quite the ugly solution but. Open a script, paste
diary('whyText.txt')
for i= 1: 10
why
end
diary off
and you'll store the answers in the current folder/whyText.txt.
