|This library is an interface to the srripc synchronous message passing module for the Linux kernel written by Sam Roberts and Andrew Thomas of Cogent Real-Time Systems, Inc., with many helpful additions from the user community. It provides synchronous message passing between processes and/or threads for the Linux operating system. It also enables queued asynchronous event notification (proxies), timed delivery of proxies and signals, triggering of proxies between tasks, and user-space interrupt handling. Synchronous message passing is a fast, flexible, and robust IPC mechanism, particularly useful for building systems composed of multiple co-operating processes. This implementation has been inspired by the QNX™ operating system, and includes a QNX 4 compatible API layer.|
