Not echoing input or output temporarily to a process, using comint

Hi All,

I'm attempting to mangle together my first elisp application, and I seek advice.

I want to send some SQL to a comint buffer already attached to Oracle SQL, 
without either the string itself or the output generated by the process being 
echoed. I just want to catch the output into a list, without the user seeing 
the output - this is for convenience only, it doesn't have to be secure. Is 
there any way to do this? Or will I have to open up a new (invisible) comint 
session and send and receive my data in the background? That would be a pain: I 
don't want to have to open up a whole new connection to the Database just to 
parse some SQL. Or can I attach more than one buffer to a process, and make 
my 'working' buffer use the same process as the user has connected to already? 
Send-invisible is my freind for the sending, but what about the output?

Any help appreciated.

Cheers,
Ian
