Shared memory is not defined by the language, nor is interprocess
communication (how, for instance, memory addresses are mapped between
two different processes, whether the memory is shared or not). You'll
be better off asking about platform-specific elements in that platform's
newsgroup. Try 'comp.os.linux.development.*' hierarchy.

Good luck!
