stdin is the name of the default input file descriptor of a process. Since there is really nothing special about `stdin`, you *should not* use this tag. Use [tag:io-redirection] for questions on how to redirect input, use [tag:file-descriptors] for questions on how to manage file descriptors, use [tag:lock] for questions of file locking, and use [tag:files] for general questions on file operations.
