Tees in Media Foundation
Microsoft's Media Foundation (a technology for audio and video) has things called tees. I don't know what they are. I think they might be some kind of connector for components, such that something splits two ways (imagine a water pipe shaped like a T), but I'm really not sure. Anyone? And is this a general term, or only Microsoft's? Equinox ◑ 04:12, 2 November 2017 (UTC)
- Now seen in PowerShell docs: : "The Tee-Object cmdlet redirects output, that is, it sends the output of a command in two directions (like the letter T). It stores the output in a file or variable and also sends it down the pipeline. If Tee-Object is the last command in the pipeline, the command output is displayed at the prompt."

- tee is the name of an old Unix program, in wide use since at least the 1980s, that duplicates its input to two locations as output. It was likely named after the T-shaped pipe connector, because Unix uses the pipe metaphor elsewhere. See sense "something shaped like the letter T". Vox Sciurorum (talk) 12:08, 14 October 2021 (UTC)

Unlike the last two, there's actually some miniscule chance that this may be able to survive RFV. However, don't get your hopes up; I couldn't find anything in EEBO other than scannos for "tree", and the OED says this was "lost in English by 1500".
