"The most exotic feature of the Shell is its ability to connect the
standard output of one command directly to the standard input of
neither program is aware that such things are going on.* In the example"
So sad that many shell programs today break this abstraction barrier :/ Was
there a watershed moment when people started doing this, or people just
always couldn't resist the "convenience" of typing less?
