Well Ok. Ive added somethings there and corrected some omissions.

But there is one thing which is more appropriate here (I think)
When I put n!!sort to sort the next n lines I was putting that merely
as an example of a 2-way pipe.
ie a command that takes its input from a bunch of vi lines and whose
output goes in as a replacement.

Of course its good to know about sort-lines but that is hardly
general.
One could want sort|uniq
or sort|uniq|pr
with all kinds of unixy command-line args peppered in -- a unix-shell
programmer never ceases to find new pipelines that he never had
imagined before.

Also Xah mentioned that flush-lines is obsolete compared to delete-
matching-lines. Since Im hearing of both for the first time I'll leave
it to others to decide which is the recommended name.
Frankly flush makes me think of fflush in C (or something less
mentionable)
