in reply to Reading from a Named Pipe

Create a named pipe with a unique named.

I might be missing something, but I don't see any code here that creates a "unique named" pipe. Nonetheless, that seems like a somewhat strange requirement. The point of a named pipe is that you know its name ahead of time, and you can use it from separate processes. If you only want a temporary pipe to communicate between two processes, a named pipe doesn't seem like the right thing. Again, from your code, it doesn't really look like that's what you're doing, but your text description seemed a bit strange.

    I have no problems creating or destroying the pipe as required, the area i'm concerned about is reading/writing from NP's. Hence I've only shown the code that is to READ from the named pipe.
