Your favourite command – haiku - Old school stuff

z3bra suggested to make a thread
about our/your favourite commands.

But I thought simply naming your favourite
tool would be boring, so I am asking you
to write a haiku about your favourite command.

A haiku is a short japanese poem,
consisting of three lines with 5, 7 and 5 syllable per line.

Example

Code:
cat

when redirection
does not suffice anymore
glue them together

If this one is not a valid haiku, I am sorry, I am not entirely
sure if the syllable count is right.

See y'all

tr

transform chars, in sets
the complement, delete them
unbuffered, that's right.
