Well, no, the problem is that my programming skills aren't up to the job
of converting generated code (from dodgy fuzzy logic apps) into a PD
object...so I thought I'd 'simply' use unix named pipes to ask PD to talk
to the C prog I have. Hence the bit of C in my message. THe question is:
am I doing this the hard way? Couldn't the shell object do this? Or is it
easy to just wrap my pipe program within a PD external?

Yep read it, and also Zmoelnig's tutorial on IEM. It's not just that I'm a
bit lazy, I really just can't follow it. It is a very good tutorial and
clear, I'm just not at the point where I can translate that to a working
object with lots of wild C from somewhere else...
