This is a PIPE: frontend for AmigaShell, taking advantage of an
undocumented feature in it since OS version 2.04.

Pipe processes a command line of the form "cmd1 | cmd2 [| cmd3 [...]]" and
creates a pipeline with the output of one command as the input of the
next. A simple usage example is "List SYS: | More".

This is the second released version of Pipe. Changes since version 1.4:
 - input/output redirection works, ie. 
   ilbmtoppm <foo.iff | pnmscale -xysize 320 200 | ppmtogif >foo.gif
   will work.
 - silly mistake with not recognising IN: or OUT: in the end of command
   line fixed.

Feature list:
 - _pchar for normal piping
 - _mchar for output catenation
 - IN: and OUT: pseudofiles to fix those broken programs that can't read
   stdin.
 - works with AmigaDOS scripts
 - works with badly formed command lines
 - small, pure, residentable
 - tested on OS 3.1

Install by copying to a directory in Shell search path and adding commands
 Set _pchar "|"
 Set _mchar "||"
to S:Shell-Startup.

Pipe is GIFTWARE.
