       mqueue.h - message queues (REALTIME)

       #include <mqueue.h>

       The  <mqueue.h>	header	shall  define  the  mqd_t  type,  which is used for message queue
       descriptors. This is not an array type.

       The <mqueue.h> header shall define the sigevent structure (as described	in  <signal.h>	)
       and  the  mq_attr structure, which is used in getting and setting the attributes of a mes-
       sage queue. Attributes are initially set when the message queue	is  created.  An  mq_attr
       structure shall have at least the following fields:

	      long    mq_flags	  Message queue flags.
	      long    mq_maxmsg   Maximum number of messages.
	      long    mq_msgsize  Maximum message size.
	      long    mq_curmsgs  Number of messages currently queued.

       The  following  shall be declared as functions and may also be defined as macros. Function
       prototypes shall be provided.

	      int      mq_close(mqd_t);
	      int      mq_getattr(mqd_t, struct mq_attr *);
	      int      mq_notify(mqd_t, const struct sigevent *);
	      mqd_t    mq_open(const char *, int, ...);
	      ssize_t  mq_receive(mqd_t, char *, size_t, unsigned *);
	      int      mq_send(mqd_t, const char *, size_t, unsigned );
	      int      mq_setattr(mqd_t, const struct mq_attr *restrict,
			   struct mq_attr *restrict);

	      ssize_t  mq_timedreceive(mqd_t, char *restrict, size_t,
			   unsigned *restrict, const struct timespec *restrict);
	      int      mq_timedsend(mqd_t, const char *, size_t, unsigned ,
			   const struct timespec *);

	      int      mq_unlink(const char *);

       Inclusion of the <mqueue.h> header  may	make  visible  symbols	defined  in  the  headers
       <fcntl.h>, <signal.h>, <sys/types.h>, and <time.h>.

       The following sections are informative.
