The collection pipeline is one of the most common, and pleasing, patterns in software. It's something that's present on the unix command line, the better sorts of OO languages, and gets a lot of attention these days in functional languages. Different environments have slightly different forms, and common operations have different names, but once you get familiar with this pattern you don't want to be without it.
