xtee

xtee (cross-tee/expanded tee) is a program for building complex pipelines. It resembles the tee command, except that instead of copying stdin to stdout, it copies an input file to stdout and stdin to an output file. You can use xtee for building things like a bidirectional HTTP filter (using netcat and sed).

Re: nifty tool, but a slightly misleading description
Thanks for pointing out that that part needs clarification. I'll make an edit.

nifty tool, but a slightly misleading description
The statement "instead of copying stdin to stdout, it copies a

file to stdout" might cause someone to ask why we need this

utility when we already have cat.

The documentation on the developer's site, however, explains

that xtee copies the input file to stdout, and stdin to the output

file.

The examples using named pipes suggest some interesting

possibilities.
