The PRINT implementation on Teradata was very poorly designed. Why on earth would you create a developer/end user feature that can only output
to the system console I/O window? I wrote a security incident on it as well, because if the operator/SA grants access to the console to allow
PRINT, the end user can do a denial of service attack on the console by flooding it with messages.
The best solution I've seen for this is to create a log table and insert your messages into it. Then you can use SQL to get your log
information out again.
