  • I know what plain text look like and I'm familiar with HTML. But what kind of "file" is that?
    • I don't know what kind of file it is. Right now it's a placeholder method that catches anything that falls through.
  • I find -t STDIN a bit of an odd criterium to decide what kind of output to get. I often run programs from the command line, that doesn't mean I want interactive output. Or on the contrary, it's not because my source comes from a file, that it means I want it to go to a file.

    In short, I'd rather use -t STDOUT to decide on kind of output instead. I imagine that ls behaves this way.

    If you want to override it, there's always command line switches.
