Am trying to understand how to use Shared memory in ActivePerl -
unfortunately AP doesn't seem to support it in its built-in libs.
Trying to download and install IPC::SysV thru CPAN (using ppm) gives
"OS unsupported error". I tried this both from the Cygwin-bash shell
(in which i usually work) and also from the MS-Command window - same
error. The shell displays the envar "OS" as Windows_NT.
My PC config in brief:
HP(Compaq) AMD Athlon LE-1640, 2.41GHz, 1.87G RAM
running MS-WinXP 2002 SP2
I have been able to successfully install ActivePerl and run several of
my programs, so I don't think it's anything to do with Perl per se.
How do I make this package (IPC::SysV) available? OR Should i be
using some other Shared-memory package? What would it be?
Kindly help with any / all pointers, or if more info is needed, please
Advance thanks for all the help...
PS1: My requirement of Shared Memory is rather huge - I need to hold
about 60-80Mb in memory while the applications are running... So,
other possible solutions like pipes etc are out of question. I am
doing this shared memory thing mainly to cut down on number of IO to
PS2: Although I am most comfortable with Unix, I have to work on
Windows (home PC) and am not very conversant with Windows API etc.
Re: Req Help to use Shared memory on ActivePerl + WinXP
Ok, from what i read on the net, it looks like this is NOT supported
on Win32.. Also, the OS that Makefile.PL checks is really 'MSWin32'
and not Windows_NT as I had assumed earlier.
But what I wanted was to be able to use Shared memory, and it seems
the package Win32::MMF and Win32::MMF:Shareable is just the package
for it. So am studying those now...
