NAME
semaphore.h, semaphore - semaphores
SYNOPSIS
#include <semaphore.h>
DESCRIPTION
The <semaphore.h> header defines the sem_t type, used in performing semaphore operations. The semaphore can be implemented using a file descriptor, in which case applications are able to open up at least a total of {OPEN_MAX} files and semaphores. The symbol SEM_FAILED is defined (see sem_open(3RT)). Inclusion of the <semaphore.h> header can make visible symbols defined in the headers <fcntl.h> and <sys/types.h>. See fcntl.h(3HEAD) and types.h(3HEAD).
