Hello,

I need an example of a specific way to name FIFO's in a client/server program. I need to have the client send the process id using getpid() then the server use that number to generate a unique FIFO (name) for writing to the client. This will allow for several clients to be open simutaneously. Any help is appreciated.

There is a lot of info on inter-process communication (IPC) can be found here:
