# How to hide all console output in Panda3d?

Whenever I start my Panda3d application, i.e. initialise the ShowBase class, I get the following console output:

Known pipe types:
wglGraphicsPipe


The application works fine, so I would like to suppress these lines.
How can I disable/hide this output?

Also, what does this mean exactly?

• what does this mean exactly? I'm not familiar with Panda3D, but to me it looks like simple status output - a list of found pipe types (which consists of a single entry in this case) and confirming that all modules loaded correctly. Why do you want to suppress those lines? Is console output even visible in the compiled/published (or whatever it is that Panda3D does) product? If not, it seems like it's not worth wasting time on. Also, a quick google tells me Panda3D is open source - so just search this text or step through the code to see where it's being printed and change that line. Jul 11 '13 at 16:05
• Yes, of course, I know that I could look for where it is being printed to console in the sources. I thought however someone knows how to turn this output off easily... Jul 12 '13 at 0:20

base.makeDefaultPipe(printPipeTypes=False)
