[cs631apue] fifo

Recall the example we ran in class causing us problems:

cc -Wall lseek.c
mkdir fifo
./a.out <fifo

I then logged in to lab.cs.stevens.edu from a second terminal and ran

cat lseeks.c >fifo

but nothing happened.

The reasons for this will become obvious in our lecture on interprocess
communication.  However, I do encourage you to reproduce the problem to
think about it and to make some educated guesses here on this mailing
