  "Eshell's I/O management code provides a scheme for treating many
different kinds of objects -- symbols, files, buffers, etc. -- as
though they were files."
  :tag "I/O management"
  :group 'eshell)

;;; Commentary:

;; At the moment, only output redirection is supported in Eshell.  To
;; use input redirection, the following syntax will work, assuming
;; that the command after the pipe is always an external command:
;;
;;   cat <file> | <command>
;;
;; Otherwise, output redirection and piping are provided in a manner
;; consistent with most shells.  Therefore, only unique features are
;; mentioned here.
;;
;;;_* Insertion
;;
;; To insert at the location of point in a buffer, use '>>>':
;;
;;   echo alpha >>> #<buffer *scratch*>;
;;
;;;_* Pseudo-devices
;;
;; A few pseudo-devices are provided, since Emacs cannot write
;; directly to a UNIX device file:
;;
;;   echo alpha > /dev/null   ; the bit bucket
;;   echo alpha > /dev/kill   ; set the kill ring
;;   echo alpha >> /dev/clip  ; append to the clipboard
;;
;;;_* Multiple output targets
;;
;; Eshell can write to multiple output targets, including pipes.
;; Example:
;;
;;   (+ 1 2) > a > b > c   ; prints number to all three files
;;   (+ 1 2) > a | wc      ; prints to 'a', and pipes to 'wc'
