Network Named PIPE

Gurus,

I've a File Transaction Server, which communicates with other servers and performs some processing.It uses many Named PIPE's.

By mistake i copied a named PIPE into a text file.

I heard that PIPE files shouldn't be copied.Isn't it?
Since it's a production box, i'm afraid on this.
Please help me on this..



Thanks in Advance!!

If the copy finished you may have grabbed some data intended for another process. If the copy seemed to hang and you had to abort it you probably got away without causing any problem.
