flrender, the script that renders filter lists, requires two parameters: input file and output file. In some cases, however, it's more convenient to give the input on stdin and receive the output from stdout instead. The two parameters should be made non-mandatory with default output being stdout and default input being stdin to allow this way of using the script.

What to change

  1. Make the parameters non-mandatory with a default value of '-'.
  2. If the output is '-', write to stdout instead of opening a file.
  3. Override get method in TopSource in abp/filters/ to read stdin if the file name is '-'.
  4. Update the documentation accordingly.
