[PD] read Linux fifos / named pipes

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.
