Unhappy how to redirecting the standard output in program

My program will do the pixel processing for output of other program.
So, I need redirect the output of the program from standard Output to my specified pipe
I do as this way in program:
But it cannot work, I think execlp take place the my program, so dup2 cannot do its work in new process.

So, how to do?

if use the buffer, /dev/tty, how to do?

Just a suggestion, why don't you just write it to a file and have the pipe read it?

(also shouldn't this be in the programming forum )
