       revtwoway - Reverse strings sample two-way processor extension

       @load "revtwoway"

       BEGIN {
           cmd = "/magic/mirror"
           print "hello, world" |& cmd
           cmd |& getline result
           print result

       The  revtwoway  extension adds a simple two-way processor that reverses
       the characters in each line sent to it for reading back by the AWK pro-
       gram.   It's  main purpose is to show how to write a two-way extension,
       although it may also be mildly amusing.
