Piping in Ubuntu / Linux

1. 'PIPING' in linux / Ubuntu systems​

So here we are, you’re about to learn the crown jewel of the Linux operating, that is system piping. So in the few videos you’ve learned many commands and that you can use redirection ‘>>’  to change the location of where you send command output and where you get command input.

But what if you wanted to connect the standard output of one command so that it flowed into the standard input of another command?


Well, that’s where Piping comes in and it’s really powerful tool in ubuntu/linux platform.Each Linux command is designed to do one task extremely well.So if you can continually pipe these highly specialized commands together and pass data between them you can build advanced pipelines to do pretty much any task that you can think of.
