PHP Dark Arts: Shared Memory Segments (IPC)

in PHP added by goodphptutorials, on 23/10/2010 advanced tutorials ipc

In my previous articles on using PHP for multi-process programming, we kept it very simple. By simple, I mean we didn’t have any inter-process communication (IPC). IPC is a set of techniques for the exchange of data amongst separate processes and/or threads. There are many different ways to set up IPC, such as files, signals, sockets, pipes, semaphores, shared memory, and message passing. This time around, we’re going to cover PHP’s implementation of shared memory segments.
