posix_mkfifo — Create a fifo special file (a named pipe)
posix_mkfifo() creates a special FIFO file which exists in the file system and acts as a bidirectional communication endpoint for processes.
Path to the FIFO file.
The second parameter
mode has to be given in
octal notation (e.g. 0644). The permission of the newly created
FIFO also depends on the setting of the current
umask(). The permissions of the created file are
(mode & ~umask).
TRUE on success or
FALSE on failure.
Note: When safe mode is enabled, PHP checks whether the files or directories being operated upon have the same UID (owner) as the script that is being executed.
