Classes

TypeReason
AnonymousPipeClientStream

Exposes the client side of an anonymous pipe stream, which supports both synchronous and asynchronous read and write operations.

AnonymousPipeServerStream

Exposes a stream around an anonymous pipe, which supports both synchronous and asynchronous read and write operations.

NamedPipeClientStream

Exposes a System.IO.Stream around a named pipe, which supports both synchronous and asynchronous read and write operations.

NamedPipeServerStream

Exposes a System.IO.Stream around a named pipe, supporting both synchronous and asynchronous read and write operations.

PipeAccessRights

Defines the access rights to use when you create access and audit rules.

PipeAccessRule

Represents an abstraction of an access control entry (ACE) that defines an access rule for a pipe.

PipeAuditRule

Represents an abstraction of an access control entry (ACE) that defines an audit rule for a pipe.

PipeDirection

Specifies the direction of the pipe.

PipeOptions

Provides options for creating a System.IO.Pipes.PipeStream object. This enumeration has a FlagsAttribute attribute that allows a bitwise combination of its member values.

PipeSecurity

Represents the access control and audit security for a pipe.

PipeStream

Exposes a System.IO.Stream object around a pipe, which supports both anonymous and named pipes.

PipeStreamImpersonationWorker

Represents the method to call as the client.

PipeTransmissionMode

Specifies the transmission mode of the pipe.
