tout_pipe command input forever

This command executes the unix shell command with input. If forever is 0, the command is terminated if it takes more than a specific amount of time (currently 5 seconds). A value of forever other than 0 causes the tout_pipe command to wait until command has finished. The stdout and stderr streams from command appear in the appropriate output window. The command returns 0 for success, -1 for failure.

NOTE: This command may not be implemented on all platforms.
