Tue 03 Oct 2017 03:15:44 PM UTC, original submission:

It would be good if cosmiccal can read a list of redshifts
or times from standard input stdin and output the (single)
chosen parameter (or possibly: multiple space-separated parameters) to standard output stdout. A simple way to do
this is to read from stdin until EOF as in cosmdist:


Ways to modify cosmiccal include:

  • if neither redshift or time are entered, then read and filter stdin
  • add a single minus "-" option as a parameter to override default input redshift or time

More ambitious methods include communicating directly between
the processes before and after the pipe.
