I wanted to see what added options I might enter in the fields provided, so I ran CDRDAO from the command line. As expected, this did produce a listing of syntax, but it is much longer than my OS/2 window. It doesn't know what "|more" means,
No program knows what "|more" means. That's the whole point of redirection.
so you can't get the listing one screen at a time, and it doesn't pipe to the printer.
Obviously if it won't pipe to "more", it won't pipe anywhere else. The reason is that it is writing to standard error, not standard output. You need to use "2>&1 | more" on the command line to redirect standard error to standard output, which can then be piped anywhere.
I have never seen this behavior before.
This seems to be Unix-heads' favourite trick, and it is desperately irritating.
Done for good reason in general, as you must realize though. Programs that are designed to have their standard output piped should not have error messages mixed in with their output stream. Their output stream should be left blank, and any messages should go to stderr. I'll agree, however, for commands that aren't designed to produce anything that can be piped out of stdout it is exceedingly irritating that their messages wind up on stderr.
