<sys/msg.h>(P)			    POSIX Programmer's Manual			   <sys/msg.h>(P)

NAME
       sys/msg.h - XSI message queue structures

SYNOPSIS
       #include <sys/msg.h>

DESCRIPTION
       The <sys/msg.h> header shall define the following data types through typedef:

       msgqnum_t
	      Used for the number of messages in the message queue.

       msglen_t
	      Used for the number of bytes allowed in a message queue.

       These  types  shall  be	unsigned  integer types that are able to store values at least as
       large as a type unsigned short.

       The <sys/msg.h> header shall define the following constant as a message operation flag:

       MSG_NOERROR
	      No error if big message.

       The msqid_ds structure shall contain the following members:

	      struct ipc_perm msg_perm	 Operation permission structure.
	      msgqnum_t       msg_qnum	 Number of messages currently on queue.
	      msglen_t	      msg_qbytes Maximum number of bytes allowed on queue.
	      pid_t	      msg_lspid  Process ID of last msgsnd
	       ().
	      pid_t	      msg_lrpid  Process ID of last msgrcv
	       ().
	      time_t	      msg_stime  Time of last msgsnd
	       ().
	      time_t	      msg_rtime  Time of last msgrcv
	       ().
	      time_t	      msg_ctime  Time of last change.

       The pid_t, time_t, key_t, size_t, and ssize_t types  shall  be  defined	as  described  in
       <sys/types.h> .

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

	      int	msgctl(int, int, struct msqid_ds *);
	      int	msgget(key_t, int);
	      ssize_t	msgrcv(int, void *, size_t, long, int);
	      int	msgsnd(int, const void *, size_t, int);

       In addition, all of the symbols from <sys/ipc.h> shall be  defined  when  this  header  is
       included.

       The following sections are informative.

APPLICATION USAGE
       None.

RATIONALE
       None.

FUTURE DIRECTIONS
