Why not load with any existing values? If the person invokes
propedit, and wants to apply it recursively, they probably want the
existing ones. And if they don't, they're in an editor, they can
easily delete them.

Makes sense.

You are dead on in that I am not completely awake, nor
sufficiently caffienated (sp?). However, I think this lack of
stimulants in my brain is also preventing me from understanding why
using a redirected I/O would be problematic?

All I suggested was allow propedit to read from STDIN. How the shell
deals with STDIN shouldn't matter to propedit, should it? It's just
STDIN, right? (remember, I'm not a programmer, well, unless perl
counts, so if I'm missing something incredibly basic, please learn me
something new :)

(Of course, you're probably gonna bring up something to do with
cross-platform compatibility hoohah that I'm not considering, and
will completely invalidate my thoughts. So, I'll tell you up front,
all I care about is a UNIX-based system ;)

Now I'm going to get some coffee, then I'm going to try and sleep some.
I'll wake up when I can make more sense :-)
