Pipes are very powerful. They can be chained to solve many problems. So, most of the commands are built in a way that they can be used with pipes as long as they read from standard input (keyboard or pipe) and write to standard output (screen or pipe )
Such programs that can be used with pipes are generally called filters. Command examples of filters are:
wc - for counting the letters, words, and lines in the input
