`mkfifo': Make FIFOs (named pipes) ================================== `mkfifo' creates FIFOs (also called "named pipes") with the specified names. Synopsis: mkfifo [OPTION] NAME... A "FIFO" is a special file type that permits independent processes to communicate. One process opens the FIFO file for writing, and another for reading, after which data can flow as with the usual anonymous pipe in shells or elsewhere. The program accepts the following option. Also see Note: Common options. `-m MODE' `--mode=MODE' Set the mode of created FIFOs to MODE, which is symbolic as in `chmod' and uses `a=rw' (read and write allowed for everyone) minus the bits set in the umask for the point of departure. Note: File permissions.
