In computer science, an anonymous pipe is a simplexFIFO communication channel that may be used for one-way interprocess communication (IPC). An implementation is often integrated into the operating system's file IO subsystem. Typically a parent program opens anonymous pipes, and creates a new process that inherits the other ends of the pipes, or creates several new processes and arranges them in a pipeline.
Full-duplex (two-way) communication normally requires two anonymous pipes.
Pipelines are supported in most popular operating systems, from Unix and DOS onwards, and are created using the "|" character.
Pipelines are an important part of many traditional Unix applications and support for them is well integrated into most Unix-like operating systems. Pipes are created using the pipesystem call, which creates a new pipe and returns a pair of file descriptors referring to the read and write ends of the pipe. Many traditional Unix programs are designed as filters to work with pipes.
A smoking pipe is a device made to allow the user to inhale or taste smoke or vapor derived from the burning or vaporization of some substance. The most common form of these is the tobacco pipe, which is designed for use with tobacco, although the device itself may be used with many other substances. The pipes are manufactured with a variety of materials, the most common (as the popularity of its use): Briar, Heather, corn, meerschaum, clay, cherry, glass, porcelain, ebonite, acrylic and other more unusual materials. Other kinds of smoking pipes include:
Offshore (1979) is a novel by Penelope Fitzgerald. It won the Booker Prize for that year. It recalls her time spent on boats on the Thames in Battersea. The novel explores the liminality of people who do not belong to the land or the sea, but are somewhere in between. The epigraph, "che mena il vento, e che batte la pioggia, e che s'incontran con si aspre lingue" ("whom the wind drives, or whom the rain beats, or those who clash with such bitter tongues") comes from Canto XI of Dante's Inferno.
"Offshore", when used relative to hydrocarbons, refers to an oil, natural gas or condensate field that is under the sea, or to activities or operations carried out in relation to such a field. There are various types of platform used in the development of offshore oil and gas fields, and subsea facilities.

Nord Stream 2 AG, the pipeline's Swiss-based operator, said last week that it had noticed an increased presence of foreign ships in the area where pipe-laying vessels were building the offshore section ... ....
The consortium behind the Gazprom-led Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline has resumed pipe laying offshore Denmark despite mounting pressure on the project from Washington. The post Gazprom restarts.. ... .
TEHRAN (Shana) - The head of Jask Oil TerminalDevelopmentProject Vahid Maliki has announced the start of the offshore pipeline operations of the early production phase of the project. On the sidelines of the offshore pipe-laying operation of the project, Maliki said.
However, this does not mean that we will also resume laying pipes on Friday,” Handelsblatt quoted the Nord Stream 2 spokesman as saying ... The firm withdrew its vessels from the pipe laying site in the Baltic Sea at the end of 2019, forcing Russia to dispatch its own ships to complete the remaining section of the offshore pipeline.
This discovery shows that offshore oil may yet thrive. During the 2014-2015 oil price collapse, offshore oil drilling was one of the most affected areas ... offshore oil is getting cheaper to extract ... Last week, work off Germany’s coast, the endpoint of the pipeline, resumed, with the pipe-laying vessel Fortuna laying a 1.6-mile section of pipe.
