The INPUT command directs Filer to read commands from a specified file rather than from the default input file, stdin.
- The name of a file you specify as the source of command input to Filer.
When you first start Filer, it accepts input from the stdin file by default. Using the INPUT command, you can redirect input from any file you specify.
When Filer reaches the end of the file you specify, Filer again accepts input from you.
You can nest the INPUT command inside command files to a maximum of nine files deep.
Example: Reading Filer commands from a file
The following command example shows the format for redirecting input from a file in a specific directory:
Filer ==> input from /home/user1/commands
