I just checked it is the same as on Windows. I edited the answer with example. You use read() and write() to access data inside the pipe.

On Windows Pipes are in fact memory mapped files. You use then just the way you use files. On Linux I guess should be very similar or the same. You read and write from / to pipes in chunks the size of your choosing. So you can write / read 64K per chunk or you can do the whole content in one read / write.

comment If I open a port and add an exception to the Windows firewall, should I ask the user first?
Yes it is a bad practice. You have to ask the user. Opening a port can be a potential security risk.
