uncat - continuously reads stdin, splits up the data either by timeout
or number of bytes read to process it
uncat [-vo] [-t seconds] [-s
uncat continuously reads stdin and repeatedly processes
the data either after seconds timeout or maximal number of bytes size read.
To process the data, uncat starts prog and feeds the data into prog’s standard
input. prog’s standard output is redirected to standard error. uncat never
writes to standard output.
prog consist of one or more arguments.
exits non-zero, uncat prints an error message, discards the data and continues
to read stdin.
Note that uncat is not crash proof.
