stdinout 0.4.0

Simple wrapper for files or stdin/stdout.

Introduction

A pattern that often occurs in UNIX utilities is:

  • You want to read from a file when a filename argument is provided, otherwise from stdin.
  • You want to write to a file when a filename argument is provided, otherwise to stdout.

This is a small crate that accommodates that pattern.

Note: This package is still new, its API will change.
