Pipes

Pipes are a concept available in most modern operating systems. Typically, these are a block of shared memory set up much like a file. Typically, one process writes information to a pipe, and another process reads it. They are often used as a form of interprocess communication or as a simple queue implementation. Windows has two flavors of pipes: anonymous pipes and named pipes. Python supports both via the win32pipe module.
