Re: named pipes

  Lighten up will you.  I don't really have any more information.  The
mkfifo command is Cygwin does not work.  You can't create a named pipe.
 I understand that Microsoft provides named pipes to Windows through
its Microsoft Platform SDK.  I don't have this kit.  I was hoping that
maybe someone did and could comment on the named pipe issue and whether
there might be a way to get them to work under Cygwin.
