I had a verry simple question to ask...
In unix when we create pipes.. the unnamed pipes that is...
is there any way to access those pipes outside the code ?
Another thing.. do sockets have an entry in the inode table ?

pipes are are the mode to share data, and they are temporary files which are created. So if you know the file name u can access it from outside the code.
Depending on the system u have to check the config to find the file.
