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

  I am executing the FastLoad from a script, then I am trying to tap into the pipe from a C# program (which calls a win32 api, CallNamedPipe) to write the data.  


Uh-oh. Are you running from Windows? My example was for Unix; I don't know whether Windows supports fork.

In a Korn shell script, you would do something like this:

     function pipe_reader() {
       fastload < my-fld-script > my-fld-output
       # my-fld-script contains the name of the named pipe
     }
     pipe_reader &
     sleep 2
     c#-program > named-pipe
     wait

Maybe there is a Windows way to do this.

I only read these messages once a day, so, if you'd like me to confuse matters further, write to me directly.
