Subjectshared memory, mmap not recommended?
Date
Hello,

In a recent posting Linus Torvalds mentioned
(http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=linux-kernel&m=97598683318724&w=2) :

> (otherwise I'll just end up disabling shared mmap - I doubt anybody really
uses it anyway, but it would be more polite to just support it).

I was thinking about using mmap for shared mememory in my program, but now I
am reconsidering.
Is the System V or Posix mechanism for shared memory a better(it will be
supported in 2.4) choice?
