I don't know about Solaris, i am reading the fundamental book of Solaris.
Here is the topic named as "REDIRECTION OF STANDARD INPUT", i don't know anything about it, i mean i know something but i don't know how to practice it on VM (Solaris installed). Please give me an example, and also explain it.
I would be very thankful.
