fifo - first-in first-out special file, named pipe
A FIFO special file (a named pipe) is similar to a pipe, except that
it is accessed as part of the filesystem. It can be opened by
multiple processes for reading or writing. When processes are
exchanging data via the FIFO, the kernel passes all data internally
without writing it to the filesystem. Thus, the FIFO special file
has no contents on the filesystem; the filesystem entry merely serves
as a reference point so that processes can access the pipe using a
name in the filesystem.
