There is a lot of duplication and insconsistency among pages related to filters and pipelines:

I will try to condense these pages into a sensible set, if no one does it first.

I would prop suggest removing the assembley line analogy and replace it with a more detailed description of a pipeline in a computing context. 11:08, 5 October 2006 (UTC)

Changed the description of software pipelines. It originally stated that these used the output stream of one process to feed the next process, and linked to the [process (computing)] article. The term 'operation' is a better description as a process is not necessarily what is being called, even if you can invoke an operation that requires a new process. In Unix it is often just a simple operation that completes within the current shell process that is having its output redirected to the input of the next operation. Other software implementations might not even use 'processes', so the term operation provides a more generic/abstract idea with which to describe this. :) Theshowmecanuck (talk) 02:21, 28 January 2010 (UTC)
