Steam as input in asciidoctor-pdf

reygiss
hi,
i'm in a situation where i need stream from a textarea to be used as input for the commandline without saving it to .adoc first. It's for security reason. Actually i need to save it first as .adocbefore getting the pdf stream as output ("-o - "options in command line). My question is : is there a way to replace .adoc input by a stream like in some native lnux command line ?

Yes, both the asciidoctor command and the asciidoctor-pdf command support pipes and streams as input. You just set the filename to '-'.

echo 'hello world' | asciidoctor-pdf -o out.pdf -

Cheers,
