I done some quicky web searches to find out how to make a named pipe. It looks very straight forward I just need to execute as root: mkfifo filename, but what the best practice on where on the filesystem to put named pipes? Should they go into /tmp, /var/tmp, /var/lib or somewhere else? Also should I follow any naming convention or is there names I should avoid?
