Availablity of Messaging Libray

Post by Thomas A. Bon » Wed, 22 Nov 1995 04:00:00



Hello,

   Is there a messaging library for Linux written in "C".
A messaging library would allow messages to be sent between tasks as a form of
communication.  Library functions would include creating/deleting message queues,
sending messages to a message queue and receiving messages from a message queue.  
This library would only have to support tasks running on the same CPU.
Thanks!

Use the system V IPC stuff, has message queues, semaphores and shared memory.
You must have system V IPC compiled into the kernel.
