multipipe(1)		    General Commands Manual		  multipipe(1)

NAME
       multipipe - supervise an	pipeline of commands

SYNOPSIS
       multipipe [ directory ]

DESCRIPTION
       multipipe  starts  one  supervise  process for each subdirectory	of the
       current directory.  multipipe skips subdirectory	 names	starting  with
       dots.  Each supervised processes	is piped a copy	of standard input sent
       to multipipe.

       Every five seconds, multipipe checks for	subdirectories again.	If  it
       sees  a new subdirectory, it starts a new supervise process.  If	a sub-
       directory is removed, it	closes the pipe	 to  that  supervise  process.
       Directory  named	supervise or with names	starting with a	period are ig-
       nored.

       If multipipe is given a command-line argument, it switches to that  di-
       rectory when it starts.

       If  multipipe  is  sent either the INT, QUIT, or	the TERM signal, or it
       reaches end of file on standard input, it runs svc -dx on each  command
       to shut it down,	and waits for it to exit.

RETURN VALUE
       Exits 0 when all	the commands are shut down.
