I am the author of pipecut. I have been a contributor to the NetBSD Operating System project for 14 years, and have been using various flavors of Unix since the mid 1980s (NetBSD since release 0.8 in 1993).

Pipecut grew out of my thoughts about making the Unix command line even more efficient, and wanting to accelerate the types of operations I see Unix users and sysadmins perform again and again every day.

I hope you find pipecut useful. I will open the codebase up to contributions before too long. I have to sort out some logistics.

Pipecut was first displayed in a presentation Nov 1, 2014 at MeetBSD California. Pipecut was created by David W. Maxwell
