I’d like to know whether it’s possible to render text using Pango, by piping text as input to stdin and then also piping the result to stdout?

Ideally I’m wanting something like below, where an argument such as intent defines the output type, because this is normally determined by the output file extension.

Outputting to stdout is defined by a dash and so is reading from stdin, which is common practice for command line utilities.


pango-view –q --markup --align=left --margin=0 –intent=svg --output=- -
