Quote:
The function performs the control operation specified by
cmd on the semaphore set (or on the semnum-th semaphore of
the set) identified by semid. The first semaphore of the
set is indicated by a value 0 for semnum.
I tend to agree that the question begs for a 'read the man page' reply. After reading the man page, a more specific question would be well received by the team, I would venture to say.
