if that's what the OP means by "stdin or command line",
Seems it was.
you could also use -p instead of -n:
You could, but I wouldn't as it is less flexible than -n.
If you want to omit some lines from the output, you can't do that if you are also using -l
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
