NAME
       stdbuf - Run COMMAND, with modified buffering operations for its standard streams.

SYNOPSIS
       stdbuf OPTION... COMMAND

DESCRIPTION
       Run COMMAND, with modified buffering operations for its standard streams.

       Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options too.

       -i, --input=MODE
              adjust standard input stream buffering

       -o, --output=MODE
              adjust standard output stream buffering

       -e, --error=MODE
              adjust standard error stream buffering

       --help display this help and exit

       --version
              output version information and exit

       If  MODE  is  'L'  the corresponding stream will be line buffered.  This option is invalid
       with standard input.

       If MODE is '0' the corresponding stream will be unbuffered.

       Otherwise MODE is a number which may be followed by one of the following: KB 1000, K 1024,
       MB 1000*1000, M 1024*1024, and so on for G, T, P, E, Z, Y.  In this case the corresponding
       stream will be fully buffered with the buffer size set to MODE bytes.

       NOTE: If COMMAND adjusts the buffering of its standard streams ('tee'  does  for  example)
       then  that  will override corresponding changes by 'stdbuf'.  Also some filters (like 'dd'
       and 'cat' etc.) don't use streams for I/O, and are thus unaffected by 'stdbuf' settings.

EXAMPLES
       tail -f access.log | stdbuf -oL cut -d ' ' -f1 | uniq
       This will immedidately display unique entries from access.log

BUGS
       On GLIBC platforms, specifying a buffer size, i.e., using fully buffered mode will  result
       in undefined operation.
