Subject Handholding: shared memory
Date Sun, 12 Aug 2001 11:32:07 GMT
Hi all,

I need a bit of handholding with the allocation of shared memory
segments in APR. A couple of questions:

- Is the reqsize parameter in apr_shm_init() optional? In other words
does this follow the behavior of the MM library where if the value is
set to zero it defaults to the maximum possible size with a soft maximum
of 64MB?

- Is the setting of the shared memory segment name using
apr_shm_name_get() and apr_shm_name_set() optional or mandatory?

I would like to use apr_shm_name_set() to give a particular segement a
name, but it's not clear in the APR header docs as to whether this is
possible on all platforms, or whether on some platforms only anonymous
shared memory is possible.
