Good suggestion. I would think that it should be easy to have a global
flag to say that you're running a command file and suppress these
dialogs. The really crude thing would be to temporarily turn off the
flag that says it's not using a graphical display, but that might
cause some bad things to happen elsewhere. I've not looked, but I'm
pretty sure that it should be easy to find all the dialogue popups and
turn them off if running a command file.

But easier is to put 'set messages on' in your command file and all
this stuff goes to that window.

It's not a sin in the Unix world. Don't know how hard it is to do
