Purpose:View realtime activity in a pipe


Format:PIPEVIEW [/D /E /GB /R /T /VH /X]


/E(nd)/VH (text+hex)
/GB (greenbar)/X (hex)





PIPEVIEW will read from STDIN, and display it in a VIEW window while also forwarding it on to STDOUT to be read by the next app.  For example:


dir /s | pipeview | sort




/DPrefix each line with the current date


/EAlways show the end of the pipe (most recent activity). Otherwise PIPEVIEW will default to showing the beginning of the pipe buffer.


/GB(GreenBar) Display alternate shaded lines to make reading the output easier with long lines


/RWrite to STDERR instead of STDOUT


/TPrefix each line with the current time


/VHThe pipe contents are displayed with each line of text followed by two lines containing the hex codes of each character.


/XDisplay the pipe contents in hex
