Description Alexander Gretencord 2002-03-23 10:35:29 UTC
The MM library is a 2-layer abstraction library which simplifies the usage of 
shared memory between forked (and this way strongly related) processes under 
Unix platforms. On the first layer it hides all platform dependent 
implementation details (allocation and locking) when dealing with shared 
memory segments and on the second layer it provides a high-level 
malloc(3)-style API for a convenient and well known way to work with 
data-structures inside those shared memory segments.
It'smainly for Apache's shared mem support.
