Greetings. I recently grabbed postgres 3.0 from wuarchive.wustl.edu. I
would like to port this rather interesting RDBMS package to a NeXT. It is
setup to run under Ultrix, SunOS, and Dynix (I think). NeXT Mach has none
of the System V shared memory or semaphore calls (at least by their SYSV
names). Some of the postgres library routines are chock full o' shm/sem
calls, so I don't think rewriting them is an option. And, I'm afraid I
don't know quite enough about Mach's virtual memory and semaphore
1) How hard would it be to implement such calls under NeXT Mach?
2) Has anyone already done it?
3) Does this belong in comp.os.mach? :-|
Please reply to me via e-mail to any of the following addresses - take your
pick. I'll summarize if everyone doesn't just think I'm completely off my
Thanks in advance.
