"Since TASKDIALOG doesn't write to standard output, it disables redirection
and piping to allow you to enter the redirection characters (<, >, and |) in
your prompt text."

I think the | symbol does not work. The first two show "redirect < stdin"
and "redirect > stdout" but the third one gives the error and only shows
"redirect"

D:\>taskdialog ok "title" "instruction" redirect < stdin

D:\>taskdialog ok "title" "instruction" redirect > stdout

D:\>taskdialog ok "title" "instruction" redirect | pipe
TCC: Unknown command "pipe"

WAD -- the documentation is in error. You have to quote or escape the pipe
character.
