Unix system call read from 2 pipes

I can't find example in this site about reading from 2 pipes. One of the pipe will be read and the other pipe used for writing.

I understand in the c program, I will need to do the following:
1. Create 2 pipes
2. On 1st pipe - close the write pipe and dup2 the read pipe
3. On 2nd pipe - close the read pipe and dup2 write pipe

Basically the program will bounce the input / output between these 2 pipes. Any idea

2 processes where a value is passed back and forth in 2 pipes. I am still trying to understand some example and if you have other link that is much more simple, please advise.

The program will stop after reaching a limit set in the loop

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Are you talking about a bidirectional pipe?

Thanks guys, I got the solution: Actually I didnt understand the question - which always is my problem. Basically I need to create 2 pipes. The parent will read from child pipe and child will read from parent pipe. Once the value reach until certain value - the process will terminate.

Before I end, any good tips on learning programming. I know you would say I will need to really to try the program and think of it. But I still find it difficult to visualize every step in programming.
