You might be able to use diary()
Also in some cases evalc() is suitable.

I enclose the concern parts of the program in TRY-CATCH blocks and use a dedicated function, which writes to the command window and a log file.
Another idea: The function FEX: CmdWinTool allows to get the text written to the command window.
