No, it isn't.
In fact, I am asking because my experience in POSIX is based on homework some years ago. For that reason I would thank to have some feedback about IPC or other possible options.

It is a basic project, but it needs to be as quick and reliable as possible.
Also, it will run on Solaris 10, so the deployment could be difficult.

Shared memory for shared library

I am writing a shared library in Linux (but compatible with other UNIXes) and I want to allow multiple instances to share a piece of memory -- 1 byte is enough. What's the "best" way to do this?

IPC(2)							     Linux Programmer's Manual							    IPC(2)

NAME
ipc - System V IPC system calls SYNOPSIS
int ipc(unsigned int call, int first, int second, int third, void *ptr, long fifth); DESCRIPTION
ipc() is a common kernel entry point for the System V IPC calls for messages, semaphores, and shared memory. call determines which IPC function to invoke; the other arguments are passed through to the appropriate call. User programs should call the appropriate functions by their usual names. Only standard library implementors and kernel hackers need to know about ipc(). CONFORMING TO
ipc() is Linux-specific, and should not be used in programs intended to be portable. NOTES
On a few architectures, for example ia64, there is no ipc() system call; instead msgctl(2), semctl(2), shmctl(2), and so on really are implemented as separate system calls. SEE ALSO
msgctl(2), msgget(2), msgrcv(2), msgsnd(2), semctl(2), semget(2), semop(2), semtimedop(2), shmat(2), shmctl(2), shmdt(2), shmget(2) COLOPHON
This page is part of release 3.25 of the Linux man-pages project. A description of the project, and information about reporting bugs, can be found at http://www.kernel.org/doc/man-pages/. Linux 2007-06-28 IPC(2)
