Eric Raymond adds the Rule of Composition: "Design programs to be connected to other programs." Redirection is the glue that achieves this design.

Great show Dann. You spoke very clearly and were obviously prepared. Well done. Since shell stuff can be quite thick at times, maybe after every few minutes you should just take a breather to allow people to catch up. Maybe a joke or story or something.
