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 the [io-redirection] tag for questions on how to redirect input, use [file-descriptors] for questions on how to manage file descriptors, use [lock] for questions of file locking, and use [files] for general questions on file operations.
