in reply to Suggest a mnemonic for piped open

Not particularly mnemonic, but it's my best effort of putting what I think, when writing or reading the constructs, into words ...

When the pipe is on the way in to the command: '| command' it is supplying input to the command.

When the pipe in on the way out from the command: 'command |' it is receiving output from the command.

With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

The start of some sanity?
