Subject[RFC v2][PATCH 11/11] perf trace: invoke live mode automatically if record/report not specified
Date
Currently, live mode is invoked by explicitly invoking the record and
report sides and connecting them with a pipe e.g.

$ perf trace record rwtop -o - | perf trace report rwtop 5 -i -

In terms of usability, it's not that bad, but it does require the user
to type and remember more than necessary.

This patch allows the user to accomplish the same thing without
specifying the separate record/report steps or the pipe. So the same
command as above can be accomplished more simply as:

$ perf trace rwtop 5

Notice that the '-i -' and '-o -' aren't required in this case -
they're added internally, and that any extra arguments are passed
along to the report script (but not to the record script).

The overall effect is that any of the scripts listed in 'perf trace
-l' can now be used directly in live mode, with the expected
arguments, by simply specifying the script and args to 'perf trace'.
