Command Reference: <stdin>

Read the STDIN belonging to the parent code block

Description

This is used inside functions and other code blocks to pass that block's STDIN down a pipeline

Usage

<stdin> -> <stdout>

Examples

When writing more complex scripts, you cannot always invoke your read as the first command in a code block. For example a simple pipeline might be:

» function: example { -> match: 2 }

But this only works if -> is the very first command. The following would fail:

# Incorrect code
function: example {
    out: "only match 2"
    -> match 2
}

This is where <stdin> comes to our rescue:

function: example {
    out: "only match 2"
    <stdin> -> match 2
}

This could also be written as:

function: example { out: "only match 2"; <stdin> -> match 2 }
