Because I don't feel like rewriting several dozen existing C programs
as provided by Radiance (radsite.lbl.gov/radiance/) just for this
purpose. It's not that I don't know about sockets. I use them in
situations when I want to run processes on remote hosts (distributed
rendering). But once I'm there, I need a simple way to just run
the existing stuff and get the results back by the simplest
means possible. That's exactly what anonymous pipes are there
for, and I'd *love* them to work as documented (or rather as I
understand the documentation... ;).

But thanks for the suggestion anyway :)


Have fun!
