Pardon the *nix-centric and lack of code nature of this question...
Does anyone know if its possible to create a "fifo directory"
that would beable to handle request from say an opendir call?
What I would like todo is have a perl script that waited
for a read on a special file and when it got that read it
would output data as though the file where a directory.
For example if I wanted to provide dynamic information to
a directory listing program such as "ls".
