Virtual shredder

The jargon equivalent of the bit bucket at shops using IBM's VM/CMS operating system.

VM/CMS officially supports a whole bestiary of virtual card readers, virtual printers, and other phantom devices; these are used to supply some of the same capabilities Unix gets from pipes and I/O redirection.
