POSIX Message Queues API.
The posix-mq library allows the creation and access of POSIX shared memory objects. POSIX message queues allow for priority-driven IPC mechanism with multiple readers and writers.
#t if the current platform supports POSIX message queues, #f otherwise.
mq-create is a wrapper around mq_open, which opens message queue referred to by name, and returns a message-queue descriptor by which the queue can be referenced in the future.
Argument PATH specifies the shared memory object to be created or opened. For portable use, name should have an initial slash (/) and contain no embedded slashes.
OFLAGS is a list of bit masks from the chicken file posix module which will be ORed together and passed to shm_open. It must contains exactly one of open/rdonly or open/rdwr and any of the other flags listed here:
- If open/create was also specified, and a message queue with the given name already exists, returns an error.
- open the message queue in nonblocking mode. In circumstances where mq_receive and mq_send would normally block, these functions instead fail with the error EAGAIN.
On successful completion mq-crate returns a new file descriptor referring to the message queue object.
mq-unlink removes a memory queue name, and, once all processes have unmapped the object, de-allocates and destroys the contents of the associated memory region.
Sends a message to a message queue. MSG can currently only be a byte blob.
Receives a message from a message queue. Returns a byte blob containing the message.
(print posix-mq?) (let* ((str "Hello, world!") (path (sprintf "/mqtest~A" (pseudo-random-integer 100))) (fd (mq-create path 10 1000 oflags: (list open/rdwr))) (msg (string->blob str))) (print "sending " msg) (mq-send path msg) (print "received " (mq-recv path)) (mq-unlink path) )
