Yeah, I know and I don't like it.

I still think, as I did 20 years ago when I first started using UNIX, that these sitting commands waiting for user input was pretty pointless.

I've never felt the urge to type in 'sort' enter some values then excitedly hitting ^D to see the result.

    I never manually type in stuff, but I often copy-and-paste stuff into a program like sort (or a Perl oneliner) to munge data. That would not be possible with your approach.

      copy and paste? Ugh. Not in this life :-).

      As an aside; these utilites where written long before such new fangled functions were available.
