mkfifo creates the FIFOs requested, in the
order specified, using mode 0666 modified by the current
umask(2). It requires write permission in the parent directory.
The options are as follows:
- Set the file permission bits of newly created FIFOs to
mode. The mode argument can be in any of the formats
specified to the
chmod(1) utility. If a symbolic mode is specified, the operators
+’ and ‘
-’ are interpreted relative to an initial mode of “a=rw”.
mkfifo utility exits 0 on
success, and >0 if an error occurs.
