msgctl ID,CMD,ARG

Calls the System V IPC function msgctl(2). You'll probably have to say

use IPC::SysV;

first to get the correct constant definitions. If CMD is IPC_STAT, then ARG must be a variable which will hold the returned msqid_ds structure. Returns like ioctl(): the undefined value for error, "0 but true" for zero, or the actual return value otherwise. See also IPC::SysV and IPC::Semaphore::Msg documentation.
