; Name          : speak.asm
;
; Build         : nasm -felf64 -o speak.o -l speak.lst tick.asm
;                 ld -s -m elf_x86_64 speak.o -o speak
;
; Description   : example of named pipes in assembler, goes together with tick.asm
;
; Source        : http://beej.us/guide/bgipc/output/html/multipage/fifos.html
;
; Remark:
; there is no error handling in this example
; don't put more characters in the buffer than the size allows - You could get an error "Bad file descriptor"
