paccheck determines whether or not to read packages from stdin based on a naive check using isatty(3). If paccheck is called in an environment, such as a shell function or script being used in a pipe, where stdin is not connected to a terminal but does not contain packages to check, paccheck should be called with stdin closed. For POSIX-compatible shells, this can be done with "<&-".
