NAME

       ipcmk - make various IPC resources

SYNOPSIS

       ipcmk [options]

DESCRIPTION

       ipcmk  allows  you  to  create  System V inter-process communication (IPC) objects: shared
       memory segments, message queues, and semaphore arrays.

OPTIONS

       Resources can be specified with these options:

       -M, --shmem size
              Create a shared memory segment of size bytes.  The size argument may be followed by
              the  multiplicative suffixes KiB (=1024), MiB (=1024*1024), and so on for GiB, etc.
              (the "iB" is optional, e.g., "K" has the same meaning as "KiB") or the suffixes  KB
              (=1000), MB (=1000*1000), and so on for GB, etc.

       -Q, --queue
              Create a message queue.

       -S, --semaphore number
              Create a semaphore array with number of elements.

       Other options are:

       -p, --mode mode
              Access permissions for the resource.  Default is 0644.

       -V, --version
              Display version information and exit.

       -h, --help
              Display help text and exit.
