    I’m sure everybody seen it already:


    better !pout !cry
    better watchout
    lpr why
    santa claus < north pole >town

    cat /etc/passwd >list
    ncheck list
    ncheck list
    cat list | grep naughty >nogiftlist
    cat list | grep nice >giftlist
    santa claus < north pole >town

    who | grep sleeping
    who | grep awake
    who | egrep 'bad|good'
    for (goodness sake) {
    be good
    }

    who | egrep 'bad|good'

    heh.. I have pipe color codes enabled on my BBS, and I saw that last part as 'badood' with the "ood'" colored green.

    Weird it's like it's interpreting the pipe and the following character as a control sequence
