ep: extended pipelining
ep is an easy-to-use pipeline process (re)director. It has the main
ability to run any number of subprocesses and redirect them basic
filedescriptors. Basic filedescriptors are 0 (standart input),
1 (standart output) and 2 (standart errput). There is no restriction
of pipe connection except that process outputs (output, errput) must
be bound with one or more processes input.
ep is a pipeline connector. For most of UNIX user there was a time
they wanted to bend the pipe (ie. make a bidirectional pipe) which
could render many problems to a simple tasks of creating modules.
Application is mostly used for creating a communication tree between
several programs which communicate trhough STDIN, STDOUT and STDERR
pipelines. ep supports cyclic pipelining (A -> B, B -> A) between
processes thus standing for a powerful tool for creating script-based
