NAME
       mkfifo - make FIFOs (named pipes)

SYNOPSIS
       mkfifo [OPTION]... NAME...

DESCRIPTION
       Create named pipes (FIFOs) with the given NAMEs.

       Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options too.

       -m, --mode=MODE
              set file permission bits to MODE, not a=rw - umask

       -Z, --context=CTX
              set the SELinux security context of each NAME to CTX

              When  COREUTILS_CHILD_DEFAULT_ACLS  environment variable is set, -m/--mode option respects default umask
              and ACLs, as it does in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 by default

       --help display this help and exit

       --version
              output version information and exit
