I'm almost certain you do not want to do what you asked. It's bizarre. Why not just write a normal program with a GUI or an inputdlg() to ask the user for some input? Or if it was something printed/echoed to the command window by a line of code in your program, just send that line directly to whatever other code needs it.

Open the diary file and search for the stopping condition with strfind() or endsWith(). If you find it, turn the diary off. Then since no diary will be continued I guess you'll have to determine somehow in your code when to start logging output to the diary again.
