mkfifo

create FIFO special files 

Command


SYNOPSIS

mkfifo fifo_name ...


DESCRIPTION

The mkfifo utility creates the FIFOs requested, in the order specified, using mode 0777. mkfifo requires write permission in the parent directory.

FIFOs must be created under the ROOTDIR/fifos directory.

FIFOs created by this command are for use only by NuTCRACKER Platform applications. These FIFOs appear as regular files to non-NuTCRACKER Platform applications. If a non-NuTCRACKER Platform application writes to a FIFO, the FIFO is corrupted such that it no longer appears as a FIFO to NuTCRACKER Platform applications.

0
