[EMBOSS] DNA sequence as input argument

Is there any way in which one can read a DNA sequence directly from the 
command line (that is
as a string input argument) rather than from a file? I am especially 
interested in finding repeats,
inverted repeats etc. (e.g. 'einverted', 'etandem' EMBOSS apps). Instead 
of creating a FASTA file
for each query sequene, I would like to read the sequence directly from 
the command line. Is this possible?

Kind regards,
