Yes, not only is the errno EPIPE returned to the caller, but SIGPIPE will be 
raised too. If you ignore signals (i.e. you don't have an explicit signal 
handler) you won't see the signal.

EPIPE normally means that there is nothing at the other end of the FIFO to read 
the data off, so a resend will probably re-signal the condition.
