NAME

sys/shm.h — XSI shared memory facility

SYNOPSIS

#include <sys/shm.h>

DESCRIPTION

The <sys/shm.h> header shall define the following symbolic constants:
SHM_RDONLY
Attach read-only (else read-write).
SHM_RND
Round attach address to SHMLBA.
SHMLBA
Segment low boundary address multiple.
The <sys/shm.h> header shall define the following data types through typedef:
shmatt_t
Unsigned integer used for the number of current attaches that must be able to store values at least as large as a type unsigned short.
The <sys/shm.h> header shall define the shmid_ds structure, which shall include the following members:
 

struct ipc_perm shm_perm   Operation permission structure.
size_t          shm_segsz  Size of segment in bytes.
pid_t           shm_lpid   Process ID of last shared memory operation.
pid_t           shm_cpid   Process ID of creator.
shmatt_t        shm_nattch Number of current attaches.
time_t          shm_atime  Time of last  shmat().
time_t          shm_dtime  Time of last  shmdt().
time_t          shm_ctime  Time of last change by  shmctl().
The <sys/shm.h> header shall define the pid_t, size_t, and time_t types as described in <sys/types.h>.
The following shall be declared as functions and may also be defined as macros. Function prototypes shall be provided.
 

void *shmat(int, const void *, int);
int   shmctl(int, int, struct shmid_ds *);
int   shmdt(const void *);
int   shmget(key_t, size_t, int);
In addition, the <sys/shm.h> header shall include the <sys/ipc.h> header.
The following sections are informative.

APPLICATION USAGE

RATIONALE
