Subj:   Re: Connecting to a Fastload Named Pipe from non-TD program
 
From:   Geoffrey Rommel

  Has anyone been able to connect to a named pipe, opened by a FastLoad, in order to infuse data from a non-Teradata program?  


I've done similar things. Be sure to start the reader before the writer. Assuming that you are starting a child process, the pseudocode would look something like this:

     fork
      in child process: sleep for 2-5 seconds; write to the pipe; close the pipe; exit
      in parent process: read from the pipe until end of data
     [back to parent here]
     wait for child to end using wait() or waitpid()
     close the pipe

Does this help?
