A pipe is a pair of files between two process that is created in the parent process. A pipe is used to connect only two processes and a single pipe also connects multiple child processes to each other and their related parent.

A process can create a pipe with a call to pipe(). This call returns two file descriptors in the array. Both the processes read from p[0] and write to p[1].
