Command Reference >
|Send the current region through an external program. ||Alt-|
This command prompts for the name of a program and runs it, passing
the current region to it as its standard input. It then displays any
output from the program in a separate buffer. With a non-negative
prefix argument, it replaces the current region with the program's
output. With a negative prefix argument, it prompts for the name of a
destination buffer. The command runs asynchronously except when it's
used to replace the current region; see the process-echo variable
to change that.
