UNBUFFER(1)              USER COMMANDS                1 June 1994


NAME

unbuffer - unbuffer output

SYNOPSIS

unbuffer program [ args ]

INTRODUCTION

unbuffer disables the output buffering that occurs when pro- gram output is redirected. For example, suppose you are watching the output from a fifo by running it through od and then more. od -c /tmp/fifo | more You will not see anything until a full page of output has been produced. You can disable this automatic buffering as follows: unbuffer od -c /tmp/fifo | more

BUGS

The man page is longer than the program.
