IPC::Msg(3pm)			 Perl Programmers Reference Guide		    IPC::Msg(3pm)

NAME
       IPC::Msg - SysV Msg IPC object class

SYNOPSIS
	   use IPC::SysV qw(IPC_PRIVATE S_IRWXU);
	   use IPC::Msg;

	   $msg = new IPC::Msg(IPC_PRIVATE, S_IRWXU);

	   $msg->snd(pack("l! a*",$msgtype,$msg));

	   $msg->rcv($buf,256);

	   $ds = $msg->stat;

	   $msg->remove;

DESCRIPTION
       A class providing an object based interface to SysV IPC message queues.

METHODS
       new ( KEY , FLAGS )
	   Creates a new message queue associated with "KEY". A new queue is created if

	   o   "KEY" is equal to "IPC_PRIVATE"

	   o   "KEY" does not already  have  a	message queue associated with it, and "FLAGS &
	       IPC_CREAT" is true.

	   On creation of a new message queue "FLAGS" is used to set the permissions.

       id  Returns the system message queue identifier.

       rcv ( BUF, LEN [, TYPE [, FLAGS ]] )
	   Read a message from the queue. Returns the type of the message read.  See msgrcv.  The
	   BUF becomes tainted.

       remove
	   Remove and destroy the message queue from the system.

       set ( STAT )
       set ( NAME => VALUE [, NAME => VALUE ...] )
	   "set" will set the following values of the "stat" structure associated with the mes-
	   sage queue.

	       uid
	       gid
	       mode (oly the permission bits)
	       qbytes

	   "set" accepts either a stat object, as returned by the "stat" method, or a list of
	   name-value pairs.

       snd ( TYPE, MSG [, FLAGS ] )
	   Place a message on the queue with the data from "MSG" and with type "TYPE".	See
	   msgsnd.

       stat
	   Returns an object of type "IPC::Msg::stat" which is a sub-class of "Class::Struct". It
	   provides the following fields. For a description of these fields see you system docu-
	   mentation.

	       uid
	       gid
	       cuid
	       cgid
	       mode
	       qnum
	       qbytes
	       lspid
	       lrpid
	       stime
	       rtime
	       ctime
