I was originally of the impression that
$ ./myprog moo[CTRL-D]
is exactly the same as
$ echo moo > cow $ ./myprog < cow
But I found that
myprog always counts one more
\n in the second version than in the first. Why is this?
wc does the same thing...
$ wc -l moo[CTRL-D]0
(Apparently zero lines is possible?)
$ echo moo > cow $ wc -l < cow 1
Can anyone explain this to me?
