NAME

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      Set the file permission bits of newly-created fifos 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.

     mkfifo exits 0 if successful, and >0 if an error occurred.
