{The command syntax for getting data from a device or file other than 
standard input is the input operator (|<|). Similarly, to send data to a 
device or file other than standard output is the output operator (|>|). 
To append data lines to an existing output file, one can use the append 
operator (|>>|). Filters may be strung together into a pipeline 
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pipeline_%28software%29> with the pipe 
operator ("|||").}

I could use a beginner's tutorial to inculcate this sort of stuff! Like 
which is what of the squiggly bits. O:-)
As I have been learning vi/Vim via vimtutor.
