Describes the structures that are used by the subroutines that perform interprocess communications operations.
The ipc.h file defines the following symbolic constants, types, and structures:
IPC_CREAT create entry if key doesn't exist IPC_EXCL fail if key exists IPC_NOWAIT error if request must wait IPC_PRIVATE private key IPC_RMID remove identifier IPC_SET set options IPC_STAT get options IPC_ALLO Centry currently allocated IPC_R read or receive permission IPC_W write or send permission IPC_NOERROR truncates a message if too long SHM_SIZE change segment size (shared mem only)
The structure ipc_perm contains the following members:
uid_t uid owner's user id gid_t gid owner's group id uid_t cuid creator's user id gid_t cgid creator's group id mode_t mode access modes unsigned short seq slot usage sequence number key_t key key
The types uid_t, gid_t, mode_t, and key_t are as defined in <sys/types.h>.
The following is declared as a function:
key_t ftok(const char *, int);
