Uses for named pipes
The scenario in Figure 48 illustrates important core concepts, but it is a relatively simple example of what you can do with named pipes. For example, you can design your message handler procedure to handle requests from more than one non-OpenEdge application user at a time. Another idea is to design a message handler that manages multi-line requests as well as single-line requests. This makes it possible for the requests to include, for example, ABL FOR EACH blocks.
