I'm trying to find a way to use an input file for a program in such a way that I can also use stdin.
For example, say I have a SQL script that creates a table. I invoke it like this:
mysql -p database < script.sql
This is great, but it exits out of mysql when the script is finished. Instead, I want to run other queries manually without being logged out of mysql.
tee can fork output to the terminal (stdout) and to a file, is there a reverse function that can be used for input, or at least a method that can be applied to most Linux/Unix commands?
