filter-buffer - Filter the current buffer through an O/S command
filter-buffer (C-x #)
filter-buffer executes one operating system command, using the contents of the current buffer as input, sending the results back to the same buffer, replacing the original text.
This would typically be used in conjunction with sort(1), awk(1) or sed(1) to translate the contents of the buffer.
