Not really. Pipes are mearly transport for RPC PDUs.


See the Named Pipes documentation here:
http://jcifs.samba.org/src/docs/pipes.html. Follow the MS link to their
API docs and look into Anonymous Named Pipes. They don't work like UNIX
named pipes though. You have to use a Pipe call and you cannot do stuff
like redirect IO with '|' in the shell. Also, I bet you 5 beans you
don't want to use named pipes. You should be using sockets.


May The Source be with you.
