Read term from a pipe?

1) pipes: The ISO Prolog compliant predicate, "open(+SrcDest, +Mode,
-Stream, +Options)", allows SrcDest to be
a term of the form, "pipe(Command)". This allows you to pipe a command
to the OS and read the resulting
output. Does Mercury support anything like this, ie., reading the
result of a command that was piped
to the OS or shell?
I have been using this to read in a term with the following code in
... open(pipe(Command), read, X,[eof_action(eof_code)]),
read(X, T), close(X)...
where X is the stream identifier and T is the term that is read in.
2)reading terms: I can successfully read in a term typed in at the
using the term_io__read_term pred., and I note that the source for
calls term_io__read_term. However, I can't figure out how to code
io__read(io__read_result(T), io__state, io_state). What does the
compiler want for the "io__read_result(T)" arg?.
I need to convert the SWI code to Mercury. Suggestions?
Thanks for any advice,
