       stdbuf - Run COMMAND, with modified buffering operations for its standard streams.

       stdbuf OPTION... COMMAND

       Run COMMAND, with modified buffering operations for its standard streams.

       Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options too.

       -i, --input=MODE
	      adjust standard input stream buffering

       -o, --output=MODE
	      adjust standard output stream buffering

       -e, --error=MODE
	      adjust standard error stream buffering

       --help display this help and exit

	      output version information and exit

       If  MODE  is  'L'  the corresponding stream will be line buffered.  This option is invalid
       with standard input.

       If MODE is '0' the corresponding stream will be unbuffered.

       Otherwise MODE is a number which may be followed by one of the following: KB 1000, K 1024,
       MB 1000*1000, M 1024*1024, and so on for G, T, P, E, Z, Y.  In this case the corresponding
       stream will be fully buffered with the buffer size set to MODE bytes.

       NOTE: If COMMAND adjusts the buffering of its standard streams ('tee' does for e.g.)  then
       that  will  override  corresponding settings changed by 'stdbuf'.  Also some filters (like
       'dd' and 'cat' etc.) don't use streams for I/O, and are thus unaffected by  'stdbuf'  set-

       tion bugs to <http://translationproject.org/team/>

       tail -f access.log | stdbuf -oL cut -d ' ' -f1 | uniq
       This will immedidately display unique entries from access.log

       On GLIBC platforms, specifying a buffer size, i.e. using fully buffered mode  will  result
       in undefined operation.
