[Gambas-user] using 2>redirect with Exec?

I cannot get redirect working with Exec.  Is it possible?

Shell "/run/mycommand 2>&1"
works as expected and redirects error text to stdout.

Exec ["/run/mycommand", "2>&1"]
does not redirect and only sends '2>&1' as an argument to /run/mycommand.

Is there a way to redirect with Exec or will i have to Shell it?

For some reason i am under the impression it is better to use Exec over
Shell if possible?

Thanks in advance
