You can just point out an error without sarcasm - I can take being
corrected. I wasn't using sarcasm to point out an error related to the
user, ffmpeg or any part of the process while picking at JavaScript,
and the original poster got the point.

Yes, I was wrong, and misled by Google, and indeed mkfifo on most
Unixes creates pipes (not fifos? ;-)), and certainly not Unix domain

(I *did* ask how the user created his socket - so you get my own
scepticism regarding my answer.)

Since you asked: The exact version is 42.

Moritz ;-)

$ gcc -o mkfifo -Wall Unix_domain_socket.c
$ mkfifo /tmp/foo
$ uname -r
