I am also having the same problem... How to read back from a named pipe?
Does anybody found any solution for this?
I'm struggling to figure out what you're trying to do here. If this is a developer question, your best bet is probably to try the mailing list: https://lists.mozilla.org/listinfo/dev-apps-firefox
I managed to create a Named Pipe and even send some info on it. You can do it this way:
var Request_file = Components.classes["@mozilla.org/file/local;1"].createInstance(Components.interfaces.nsILocalFile);
var outputStream = Components.classes["@mozilla.org/network/file-output-stream;1"].createInstance(Components.interfaces.nsIFileOutputStream);
outputStream.init(Request_file, 0x04 | 0x08 | 0x10, 00002, 0);
var text = "";
My problem however, right now is with reading infor being sent back on the same Pipe. Any ideas how to do that?
