Hello group,

I am using a constant value as

         #define BUFSZ PIPE_BUF

to be used in declaration of an array. Is that fine? I'm using it since I found it is used in a book (Linux Programming by Example) while piping and calling an extranal utility.

Thanks,
ak

Sure, why not ? PIPE_BUF is just a value (like 4096 for example), so you can use it as such.
