Dear Alen,

I believe you should leave out the "Yes", although it might propt for 
outfile still, but offer stdout as default.

You could also use (in Unix/Linux/etc at least) -outfile /dev/tty to 
direct the output to terminal.

I noticed that the EMBOSS tools have the -stdout flag, but I can't seem to get anything printed to standard output. For instance, I tried the following commands, but to no avail:
> polydot globins.fasta -stdout Yes -auto Yes -graph cps
> tmap -stdout Yes -auto Yes opsd.msf -out tmap.res -graph cps
