This is not a pipe. It is an inherited file
man bash says:
Redirection of input causes the file whose name results from the expan-
sion of word to be opened for reading on file descriptor n, or the
standard input (file descriptor 0) if n is not specified.
The general format for redirecting input is:
If you inquire the attributes by fstat(0, &buf) then
you get those of the file, not those of a proxy
object. It is just another way to open the file.
Have a nice day :)
