hello everybody,

per default [pdflatex <file>.tex] produces <file>.pdf, but i
need to have the pdf-output sent to stdout. in the manpages
the option --ips is mentioned, but there are only two lines
of explanation and i have no idea how to use this option. i
thought, that it may be possible to get the output to stdout
somehow via this ipc option, maybe by simply passing it to
echo or something. has anyone an idea on how to manage this
or what this ipc option means?

thanks a lot in advance!
