A set of processes chained by their standard streams, so that the output of each process (stdout) feeds directly as input (stdin) of the next one. Each connection is implemented by an anonymous pipe. Filter programs are often used in this configuration. The concept was invented by Douglas McIlroy for Unix shells and it was named by analogy to a physical pipeline.
