Subject RE: Apache shared memory implementation
Date Thu, 17 Nov 2011 00:55:36 GMT
Thanks Sorin.  The program worked fine when I made the changes you
suggested(I had to change the last line to "++((int) *shm_base);").  Can I
employ the same idea when it comes to more complicated structures?  I will
be making my own implementation of a linked list as a shared memory
structure?  Suppose, that the list is declared as "list *my_list", can I
just call set_shared region like this: set_shared_region(&my_list) ? Would
this work?

You have some problems with the pointers.

You should have

void *shm_base;

and then

set_shared_region(void **base) {
 *base = mmap(...);
 if (*base == MAP_FAILED) { ... }


and when you increment the counter, you do

++((int *)shm_base);
