 Share application data with UNIX system V IPC

Identify methods that applications use to communicate with each other and use message queues, semaphores, and shared memory to connect your applications.

" The Unix operating system provides a rich set of features that allows processes to communicate with each other. Known as Inter-Process Communication (IPC), you can use this communication method to reconfigure an application at run time or to share data between different processes that are running in parallel. This article teaches you how to identify the methods that applications can use to communicate with each other, select the most appropriate method for your application, and begin your implementation."
