Suppose I want to run, from emacs, the program "prog" with the active buffer,
"buffer", say, as argument.
Of course I can do "Meta-! prog buffer". Some editors, however, have a
default name for the active buffer. In vi, for instance, one can do ":! prog
%" . In ultraedit, the buffer is called "%f". How can we do that in emacs?

If it is a "normal" command that reads from standard input when no file name argument is given: C-x h M-| prog RET
