in reply to Suggest a mnemonic for piped open

Another way of thinking about it that might work for you.

Place an imaginary 'perl' the other side of the pipe from the command.

Then perl '| command' becomes: perl supplying input to the command.

And 'command |' perl becomes: the command suppying input to perl.

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?
