pipe buffering

pipe buffering

Post by Bruce Rams » Tue, 13 Jun 1995 04:00:00

I need some help! I need the buffers on a pipe to be cleared after each line
write. Is this possible because I have to have a ksh script piping data around
and it has to be in real time.

Thanks in Advance for any help.

1. pipe/buffer-command for buffering large amounts of I/O

I don't know whether this is just what you want, but maybe you could try:

        cp /dev/null FILE
        tail -f FILE | command_2 &
        command1  >> FILE

You did say that storing the data on the disk was acceptable.

I'm sending followups out of comp.lang.perl.misc.
