    System V IPC

    Does anybody here use (or know anyone that uses) System V IPC's? I'm not even sure if they are POSIX'd. I am just wondering if I should invest time learning all about it.

    thanks

    Short answer:

    Yes.

    System V IPC may be a bit old fashioned (but then again, so is Unix), but it is still used today. Most programming languages that I know of have some kind of interface for it. Give it a whirl, you'll be glad you did.

    Thanks for the reply. I wasn't sure if people still used them or if they just stuck with normal pipes/FIFO's or just network sockets. I'll give it some time, thanks.

    Without them, life would be real hard. They are such a beautiful thing. We have used them in almost every application we write in our commercial software.
