Fifo file in linux

Is there any way to create a fifo other than creating a process with mkfifo in Crystal?


Unix sockets & fifo (named pipes) are not exactly the same, what’s your use-case?

Oh, it’s true!

And then, any shard to handle fifo pipes?

I think there should be mkfifo bindings in the stdlib. LibC.mkfifo exists, but there should be a high-level wrapper since LibC is an implementation detail.

I’m late to the party but just made a small shard to support this:

And I also found on which is a great alternative. (It’s not on or … and I have no idea why or how these sites all work :person_shrugging:)
