       peet - piped reverse tee: read from many file descriptors and copy to one


       peet [-h] [-w outfd] infd1 [infd2 ...]


       peet reads from many file descriptors and copies everything to one file descriptor.  If no
       file descriptor is given ('-w' option), 1 (stdout) is used.

       peet is text line based - i.e. only complete  lines  are  written.   The  order  of  lines
       written  to  the  output  file  descriptor is pure random when there is more then one file
       descriptor where a complete line can be read from.

       peet can be used with pipexec(1) to de-multiplex text based output.


       -h     print help and version information

       -w outfd
              use the given outfd as output file descriptor.  If this option is not specified,  1
              (stdout) is used.


       Read from stdin (fd 0), and file descriptors 9 and 11 and write to stdout.
           peet 0 9 11

       Using  pipexec(1): start two commands, both write their log to stdout and use one instance
       of rotatelogs(1) to write the logs to disk into a common log file: (The file descriptors 8
       and 11 are chosen by random.)
           pipexec [ CMD1 /usr/bin/cmd1 ] [ CMD2 /usr/bin/cmd2 ] \
             [ PEET /usr/bin/peet 8 11 ] \
             [ RLOGS /usr/bin/rotatelogs /var/log/%Y%m%d_cmd.log ] \
             "{CMD1:1>PEET:8}" "{CMD2:1>PEET:11}" \


       pipexec(1), peet(1), rotatelogs(1), tee(1)
