NAME

     mkfifo - make FIFOs

SYNOPSIS

     mkfifo [-m mode] fifo_name ...

DESCRIPTION

     mkfifo creates the FIFOs requested, in the order specified, using mode
     0666 modified by the current umask(2).

     The options are as follows:

     -m mode
             Set the file permission bits of newly created directories to
             mode. The mode is specified as in chmod(1). In symbolic mode
             strings, the "+" and "-" operators are interpreted relative to an
             assumed initial mode of "a=rw".

     mkfifo requires write permission in the parent directory.

     The mkfifo utility exits 0 on success or >0 if an error occurred.
