Portably create pipe() or pipe-like handles, one way or another
Pipes are troublesome beasts because there are a few different,
incompatible ways to create them. Not all platforms support all ways, and
some platforms may have hidden difficulties like incomplete or buggy
IO::Pipely provides a couple functions to portably create one- and two-way
pipes and pipe-like socket pairs. It acknowledges and works around known
platform issues so you don't have to.
On the other hand, it doesn't work around unknown issues, so please report
any problems early and often.
IO::Pipely currently understands pipe(), UNIX-domain socketpair() and
regular IPv4 localhost sockets. This covers every platform tested so far,
but it's hardly complete. Please help support other mechanisms, such as
INET-domain socketpair() and IPv6 localhost sockets.
IO::Pipely will use different kinds of pipes or sockets depending on the
operating system's capabilities and the number of directions requested. The
autodetection may be overridden by specifying a particular pipe type.
