WARNING: XSH2 redirection syntax is not yet finished. It is currently the same as in XSH1 but this may be drastically changed in the future releases.
Output redirection can be used to pipe output of some XSH command to some external program, or to capture it to a variable. Redirection of output of more than one XSH command can be achieved using the do command.
The syntax for redirecting the output of a XSH command to
an external program, is
xsh-command | shell-command
xsh-command is any XSH2
shell-command is any command
(or code) recognized by the default shell interpreter of the
operating system (i.e. on UNIX systems by
Windows systems by
cmd). The shell command
may contain further redirections (as supported by the system
shell interpreter), but should not contain semicolons, except when
the whole shell command is enclosed in brackets.
Example 5. Use well-known UNIX commands to filter XPath-based XML listing from a document and count the results
ls //something/* | grep foo | wc
