You're usually better off posting the actual code that you've tried,
rather than a pseudo-code version of it.  (If the original code is more
than a few lines, whittle it down to a small test case that demonstrates
your problem, then post that.)

For example, this is plain wrong.  But it's so far wrong that I imagine
it's probably just a typo you made in posting.

>pipefilename < script1

Obviously, it should be this.

    script1 > pipefilename
