As Scrutinizer said, %q is likely not portable.
And, %q solves a problem that would deserve a better solution.
The natural delimiter for piped input is a newline.
So perhaps you can use that?
Try the following example:
#Simple echo
  ( IFS=" "; printf "%s\n" "$*" )

        printe() { # STR1 STR2 STR3
        # Simply prints the strings as passed
        # It requires 3 strings to use the center
                case "$1" in
                                # Read pipe, expect 3 lines
                                read LEFT; read CENTER; read RIGHT
                                printe "$LEFT" "$CENTER" "$RIGHT"
                swarm.print.border -e
                swarm.print.text -e "$1" "$2" "$3"

echo_ "this is
a piped
test code" | printe -

printe "this is" "an argument" "test code"

printf "%s\n" "this was" "an argument" "test code" | printe -

BTW the echo tip was from me. sed s/RudiC/MIG/gSmilie
