ielm uses the cat program

From: Alex Schroeder
Subject: ielm uses the cat program
Date: 30 Jan 2003 13:19:07 +0100

ielm.el contains the following:

  ;; A dummy process to keep comint happy. It will never get any input
  (if (comint-check-proc (current-buffer)) nil
    (start-process "ielm" (current-buffer) "cat")

When I just installed Emacs 21 on a friend's windows machine without
any unix-like tools on it, M-x ielm would not work because he did not
have cat installed.  Can we replace the cat program with anything
