I'm using several User Commands with texmaker on Mac OS X. My problem is, that some of the commands are just shellscripts, or other programs like texcount that produces output to the STDOUT. Is there a way to tell texmaker, that the output generated by user commands should be displayed inside the log/message view of texmaker?

e.g. I have a user command for word count /usr/texbin/texcount %.tex -inc -sum that runs properly on the terminal, but doesn't produce any output to texmaker's log window when ran as a user command.
