In fact, PARI does not know about a PARI window. PARI know about the
underlying terminal, which may be a terminal emulator window.

The proper way to implement what you ask would be to set up the
terminal emulator to pop-up the window when new output is received.
This is certainly possible, but does not belong to PARI.
