( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I need to run about 5 or 6 processes reading separate fifo entries in an NFS directory.
It seems that if more than one reader reads a fifo (created via mknod), the data gets mangled.
I tried using msgget, etc., but that fails, apparently due to poor msg.ph files, and I'm not allowed to install a C compiler in this environment, so I can't even install the IPCSysV module.
Any ideas?
