I suggest you start with reading the stdin manpage and the redirection
part of the sh manpage (type 'man stdin' in a terminal for the stdin
manpage; type 'man sh' for the sh manpage; you can search in manpages
by typing a slash followed by an expression, for instance
'/^REDIRECTION' followed by an 'enter' will take you directly to the
redirection part of the sh manpage).

Greetings, Sander.
