IPC(2)                     Linux Programmer's Manual                    IPC(2)



NAME
       ipc(2,5) - System V IPC system calls

SYNOPSIS
       int ipc(2,5)(unsigned int call, int first, int second, int third, void *ptr,
       long fifth);

DESCRIPTION
       ipc(2,5)() 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(2,5)().

CONFORMING TO
       ipc(2,5)() is Linux specific, and should not be used in(1,8) programs intended to
       be portable.
