So tell me, Mr. Edelstein, exactly what is the advantage of "cat one-file |
process" that makes up for its comparative inefficiency? "The disadvantage is
small" is a point worth making only when the advantage is greater, not when
the advantage is nonexistent. Additionally, doing it when the disadvantage is
small reinforces a bad habit, and telling others to do it fosters a bad habit
You have no counterargument here.
