I need to debug an app, that gets data from stdin
Is there any way to send data to this app, when it's being debugged in gdb?

basically I need to emulate this
echo "data" | app
in gdb

You can stream plain text file to stdin by executing run like this:

[CMD="(gdb)"]run < /home/user/stuff.txt[/CMD]

Not sure if its possible to do actual piping without writing some short of wrapper.
