Ulix is a Unix-like operating system specially designed for educational
purposes. In Unix, pipes are used for inter-process communication. While
anonymous pipes only reside in memory, named pipes are represented as
special files in the file system. The thesis covers the implementation
of both named and anonymous pipes for the Ulix OS. A virtual file system
is created and exported to user land to provide an interface to debug and
introspect pipes. The Literate Programming paradigm is used to describe
in detail how pipes can be implemented in a Unix-like operating system.
