Package fifo implements functions to create and open a fifo for inter-process communication in an OS agnostic way. A few assumptions should be made when using this package. First, New() must always be called before Open(). Second Open() returns an io.ReadWriteCloser that is only connected with the io.ReadWriteCloser returned from New().
func CreateAndRead ¶
CreateAndRead creates a fifo at the given path, and returns an open function for reading. For compatibility with windows, the fifo must not exist already.
It returns a reader open function that may block until a writer opens so it's advised to run it in a goroutine different from reader goroutine
func OpenWriter ¶
OpenWriter opens a fifo file for writer, assuming it already exists, returns io.WriteCloser
