Um, how would that ever work? You have a file named '?' and a file named '2' ? But the wildcard ? would match the 2 also...

On Linux, you can do this right now:

echo \? 2 | eui /proc/self/fd/0

On the BSDs, there is probably a /dev/stdin or similar device that would do the same thing.

(These options aren't as good as supporting it natively or with the '-' filename, but are temporary workarounds.)

Um, my demo is flawed! I've updated it as to not cause further confusion. It was:

cat ? 2 | eui 

I meant for it to be (which it is now)

echo ? 2 | eui
