I like this idea because it is what I would expect. In my first
"experiment", I assumed that I can use the "|" as a separator. I would
like to use a table as input form and pipe the rows to a shell script
written in org-babel. Sometimes it is easier to proccess data with
awk instead of using elisp. So my example is a bit misleading.

IMHO it is not necessary under Unix. Reading from stdin is usual. But it
maybe different under Windows.

Many thanks
