IPC::Msg - SysV Msg IPC object class
use IPC::SysV qw(IPC_PRIVATE S_IRWXU); use IPC::Msg;
$msg = new IPC::Msg(IPC_PRIVATE, S_IRWXU);
$ds = $msg->stat;
A class providing an object based interface to SysV IPC message queues.
new ( KEY , FLAGS ) Creates a new message queue associated with KEY. A new queue is created if
* KEY is equal to IPC_PRIVATE * KEY does not already have a message queue associated with it, and FLAGS & IPC_CREAT is true.
On creation of a new message queue FLAGS is used to set the permissions.
id Returns the system message queue identifier. rcv ( BUF, LEN [, TYPE [, FLAGS ]] ) Read a message from the queue. Returns the type of the message read. See msgrcv. The BUF becomes tainted. remove Remove and destroy the message queue from the system. set ( STAT ) set ( NAME => VALUE [, NAME => VALUE ...] ) set will set the following values of the stat structure associated with the message queue.
uid gid mode (oly the permission bits) qbytes
set accepts either a stat object, as returned by the stat method, or a list of name-value pairs.
snd ( TYPE, MSG [, FLAGS ] ) Place a message on the queue with the data from MSG and with type TYPE. See msgsnd. stat Returns an object of type IPC::Msg::stat which is a sub-class of Class::Struct. It provides the following fields. For a description of these fields see you system documentation.
uid gid cuid cgid mode qnum qbytes lspid lrpid stime rtime ctime
