22.13. Win32::Pipe

This module gives Win32 Perl the ability to use named pipes. Under Windows NT, named pipes are used for processes to communicate with one another, and are not limited to the local machine.

Named pipes are created with new, which makes a new Win32::Pipe object and returns true on success. new has the following syntax:

my $named_pipe = Win32::Pipe->new($pipe_name);
