I could need a named pipe for Boost.Process (which isn't an official Boost
C++ library but everyone calls it like this). There is a create_pipe()
function for anonymous pipes (see
For asynchronous I/O on Windows a named pipe is required though. The
example at
uses a create_async_pipe() function which however isn't provided by the
library. So a function to create a named pipe would be definitely useful.
