We do have redirection, but not pipe support, i.e., having output come
from another command, not a file. But perhaps what he means is that
since we have redirection, lack of pipe support can be worked around by
redirecting the output of the first command in the pipe to a file, and
then debug your program reading from that file.
Still, IMHO it's better to directly support this use case. I've seen
people ask about it in #gdb.
