Persistent "pipes" in Linux
In a project I'm working on I ran into the requirement of having some sort of persistent FIFO buffer or pipe in Linux, i.e. something file-like that could accept writes from a process and persist it to disk until a second process reads (and acknowledges) it. The persistence should be both across process restarts as well as OS restarts.
AFAICT unfortunately in the Linux world such a primitive does not exist (named pipes/FIFOs do not persist
