NAME

       IPC::Msg - SysV Msg IPC object class

SYNOPSIS

           use IPC::SysV qw(IPC_PRIVATE S_IRUSR S_IWUSR);
           use IPC::Msg;

           $msg = IPC::Msg->new(IPC_PRIVATE, S_IRUSR | S_IWUSR);

           $msg->snd($msgtype, $msgdata);

           $msg->rcv($buf, 256);

           $ds = $msg->stat;

           $msg->remove;

DESCRIPTION

       A class providing an object based interface to SysV IPC message queues.

METHODS

       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.  Be careful
           not to set any flags that the Sys V IPC implementation does not allow: in some systems
           setting execute bits makes the operations fail.

       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(2).
           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(2).

       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
