I’m having trouble grasping the concept of redirecting to commands, like the wordcount command.
In ‘Learn the Command Line’/Ecosystem project step 4 tells me to: " Redirect plants.txt as standard input to the wordcount command. Use the
-l option on the wordcount command. "
I used help to see the command is ‘wc -l <plants.txt’ but my question is WHY?? What does this do?
