Hi @pditommaso . Is there a background reason for the syntactic difference between 'stdout' outputs and the rest? Why not "stdout into channel"? Very minor point, but may trip up newbies.

@robsyme Hi. Not sure to get it. Actually it is possible to use that syntax. For example:
process foo {
  output: 
  stdout into x

 'echo Hello' 
}

@pditommaso Sorry - I hadn't realised that worked. Thanks!
