A command line software for SysV semaphores and message queues
SysV shared memory is not supported due to the limited utility of a command-line interface.
ipcmd enables application developers to easily prototype, debug, and test the use of SysV semaphores and message queues in applications.
Furthermore, ipcmd provides a high-level, scriptable interface to system administrators/script writers for coordinating concurrent processes.
Detailed instructions on how to install and use the ipcmd utility on your Mac are available HERE.
