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.
