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

           o   "KEY" is equal to "IPC_PRIVATE"

           o   "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
