Subclass of CIM_LogicalFile
FIFOPipeFile is a special type of LogicalFile that represents an interprocess FIFO (sometimes referred to as a “named pipe”). Operating systems use this convention to manage interprocess communication through processes reading and writing the FIFO. The FIFO can be accessed by unrelated processes, in contrast to the more well-known command line redirection mechanism (e.g. UNIX’s ‘ps -eaf | grep foo’, also known as an “unnamed pipe”). An exemplary operating system implementation (using the FIFO concept) is the UNIX S_IFIFO file type.
