Pipe programming
I am trying once again to make the xPIPE event in Gui4Cl work as expected under OS4 My recent AllocSysObject question was about this ( in fact a program piper.c build of 'pipe related' gui4cli's component) I struggle with 1. lack (did not find anyway ) of a working pipe's source. Pipeviewer 0.4.5 is available on sourceforge as an Amiga program but i did not find the corresponding source http://www.ivarch.com/programs/sources/pv-1.5.7-1.src.rpm as a more recent, it would probably be more usefull too to our community, so i guess i am asking: can someone compile this version ? or else: does anybody know of an other pipe related source (& its working OS4 program) 2. lack of a good (& hopefully simple) explanation of tasks & processes in Amiga (OS4.1 ?) Maybe i did not search well here. 3. The do's & don't in debugging them (such as some i noted about using IDOS (PrintF) functions in the AllocSysObject thread

@JosDuchIt "Pipe programming" is normally related to the interprocess communication (IPC) domain. The PIPE: handler is there for the purpose

@JosDuchIt You should be
@JosDuchIt You should be able to use the PIPE: handler (or any other AmigaDOS handlers), through normal AmigaDOS file I/O functions such as Open(), Read() and Write().
