If you want to delete it, just use 'rm'. Even if it's
made by 'mknod', it's just another file as far linux
If you meant how to "empty" the pipe after writing
to it, you just need something to read from it.
$ bunzip2 -c compressed_file.bz2 > named_pipe &
$ cat named_pipe
Of cource, there is no reason to use a pipe in
the above. You'll probably has to put the writing
to the pipe in the background (with &), as the pipe
gets "filled up", and don't accept any more until
it's "emptyed" by reading it.
A friend of mine told me that it was possible to completely re-create
the /dev directory by using the mknod command...!!! How is this
The same friend deleted the /dev directory on one of my systems... Any
and all help will be appreciated... Thanks...
