TPIPE and /inputstring

#1
Code:
c:\users\jlc\utils>ver

TCC  22.00.29 x64   Windows 7 [Version 6.1.7601]
I have a file as follows;
Code:
c:\users\jlc\utils>type testpipe.txt
This  is  a  test
This works;
Code:
c:\users\jlc\utils>tpipe /input=testpipe.txt /simple=19
This is a test
This does not work;
Code:
c:\users\jlc\utils>tpipe /inputstring="This  is  a  test"  /simple=19
...that is, no output is displayed when using the /inputstring option.

Regardless of the value for /simple, no output is displayed when I use /inputstring.

What am I missing?

There's a difference of opinion between the textpipeengine.dll documentation and the actual behavior when using inputstring. I've changed TPIPE for the next build to match the behavior rather than the docs.
