other then using [shell], is there a way to read from a named pipe /
fifo in Linux?
I tried [textfile] and [msgfile] from zexy. Both fail to read from a
pipe, [msgfile] with the error message:
pd: getbytes() failed -- out of memory
msgfile_read: could not reserve -1 bytes to read into
Writing to a pipe using [textfile] works nicely, by the way.
