       sys/shm.h - XSI shared memory facility

       #include <sys/shm.h>

       The <sys/shm.h> header shall define the following symbolic constants:

	      Attach read-only (else read-write).

	      Round attach address to SHMLBA.

       The <sys/shm.h> header shall define the following symbolic value:

       SHMLBA Segment low boundary address multiple.

       The following data types shall be defined through typedef:

	      Unsigned integer used for the number of current attaches that must be able to store
	      values at least as large as a type unsigned short.

       The shmid_ds structure shall contain the following members:

	      struct ipc_perm shm_perm	 Operation permission structure.
	      size_t	      shm_segsz  Size of segment in bytes.
	      pid_t	      shm_lpid	 Process ID of last shared memory operation.
	      pid_t	      shm_cpid	 Process ID of creator.
	      shmatt_t	      shm_nattch Number of current attaches.
	      time_t	      shm_atime  Time of last shmat
	      time_t	      shm_dtime  Time of last shmdt
	      time_t	      shm_ctime  Time of last change by shmctl

       The pid_t, time_t, key_t, and size_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.

	      void *shmat(int, const void *, int);
	      int   shmctl(int, int, struct shmid_ds *);
	      int   shmdt(const void *);
	      int   shmget(key_t, size_t, int);

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