A result from that is apparently a string.

But this is certainly not a string.

Not that surprising.

Look at functions like get-output-stream-string, call-process
and make-string-output-stream.  OTOH have a peek into /etc/bashrc

terminal window.  If you are thinking about windows of that sort
that could be quite a bit simpler.
