Perl 5 version 24.0 documentation
- shmctl ID,CMD,ARG
Calls the System V IPC function shmctl. 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 that will hold the returned
shmid_dsstructure. Returns like ioctl: undef for error; "
0but true" for zero; and the actual return value otherwise. See also SysV IPC in perlipc and the documentation for IPC::SysV .
Portability issues: shmctl in perlport.
