Synopsis

mcfifo implements a poor man's mkfifo on Windows. Though less convenient than Unix mkfifo, it aims to be more convenient than fiddling with cmd.exe and anonymous pipes.

Usage

mcfifo pipe command [ args, ... ]

e.g.

  1. launch the child process and redirect its stdin to read from the specified named pipe (which mcfifo creates)

    mcfifo \.\pipe\downloader_out ffmpeg -y -i - output.mp4

  2. launch the parent process normally

    rtmpdump -r rtmp://www.whatever.com -o \.\pipe\downloader_out

Install

Save mcfifo.exe to a path accessible from the command line.

Uninstall

Remove mcfifo.exe.

Build

make

mcfifo is developed on Linux with MinGW. The Makefile requires i586-mingw32msvc-gcc. Patches for other build environments welcome.

Version

1.1.0
