16:54 mikemol1 Oi, I think the UnixPipes guy just blew my mind after, I dunno, several years.
16:56 mikemol1 I'm doing some convoluted stuff in bash, trying hard not to avoid creating temporary files that hold, you know, data. So, FIFOs and subshells get involved.
16:57 mikemol1 I suspect that one of my scripts wound up deadlocking because the process-builtin buffering on either side of one of my FIFOs was insufficient for the data being held there before being read.
16:59 mikemol1 So I start thinking about the buffer command, with 'head' and 'tail' to ensure I can't overflow it. And then I think about 'tee' and 'wc' and passing line counts back through another fifo from another subshell to see if "tail"'s output is even necsesary...
17:00 mikemol1 It's disgusting from one idiomatic perspective, but beautiful in another. And directory entries in a tempdir are relatively cheap...
