Sorry. Bad example. I mean "If there is no f flag in the receipe start
and if there is '|' then suggest i flag.". Should it also check. "AND
no formail in '|' action line". How's that?
Still doesn't make any sense IMHO. If it doesn't appear to write its
standard output anywhere and doesn't have an f flag, you might
consider this, but there will always be programs which do something
sensible without producing standard output which should definitely not
have an i flag in this situation (the MH rcvstore program comes to
mind as a good example).
