4.2 Using pipes

Especially on Unix it is very common to read from standard input and to write to standard output. I don't think that this is sensible for PP3, but anyway, I included this facility. If you give `-' as the only parameter, PP3 reads the input script from standard input, and if you don't give an output filename in the input script (see Input scripts), PP3 writes to standard output.
