This section lists the output modes which can be used as
the value of the
omode parameter of
tpipe and other commands.
Typically, having produced a result table by pipeline processing
an input one, you will write it out by specifying
omode=out (or not using the
omode parameter at all -
out is the default). However, you can do other things
such as calculate statistics, display metadata, etc. In some of
these cases, additional parameters are required. The different
output modes, with their associated parameters, are described in
the following subsections.
