Name
       mkfifo - make fifo special files

Syntax
       mkfifo filename ...

Description
       The command creates the `fifo special files' named by its operand list.
       The operands are taken sequentially, in the order specified,  and  each
       `fifo  special file' is either completed or, in the case of an error or
       signal, not created at all. Unless interrupted, will attempt to	create
       all files specified.  Error messages are written to standard error.

       Each  `fifo  file' is created with a mode of 666, read and write priviā€
       leges for the user, group and other. The mode is modified  by  clearing
       those  bits  set in the process's file mode creation mask. See for more
       information.
