cvcat - Copy standard in to named file
cvcat is used by the WorkShop Debugger and Performance tools to prepare
command-line arguments for the target process when the complete command
line is longer than can be handled by the canonical processing of the pty
It reads its standard input, concatenating lines and writing the result
to the named file.
Although cvcat is not itself an X program, and does not read or obey any
X resources, one is relevant to it: if the X resource longCmdsOK is set
to True, then WorkShop will not use cvcat processing no matter how long
the command line may be. For shells that do not use canonical processing
(including tcsh, and ksh in Emacs mode), this allows the complete
invoking command to appear in the shell history list.
