SYNOPSIS
       package require Tcl  8.5

       package require TclOO

DESCRIPTION
       The tcl::chan::fifo package provides a command creating channels which
       live purely in memory. Access is fifo-like, i.e. things are read out of
       the channel in the order they were written to it.  This is equivalent to
       the fifo channels provided by the package Mmechan, except that this is
       written in pure Tcl, not C. On the other hand, Memchan is usable with Tcl
       8.4 and before, whereas this package requires Tcl 8.5 or higher, and
       TclOO.

       The internal TclOO class implementing the channel handler is a sub-class
       of the tcl::chan::events framework.

API
       ::tcl::chan::fifo
              This command creates a new fifo channel and returns its handle.
