Subject: Invalid argument error at IPC::SharedMem->new on CentOS 5.1x64
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 836b
I installed IPC-SysV 2.0.0 on CentOs 5.1 x86_x64 bit version. Perl version is v5.8.8 I tested with "shmsizetest.pl" script, varing $shmsize from 1G~4G It was successful to create 1 G byte shared memory, but 2G, 3G, 4G were failed. (1G=1x1024x1024x1024) And Errno(=$!) was "Invalide Argument" Parameters related to SysV shared memory are ----------------------------------------------- max number of segments = 4096 max seg size (kbytes) = 67108864 max total shared memory (kbytes) = 17179869184 min seg size (bytes) = 1 ----------------------------------------------- So I think no problem to get 4G byte at SysV shared memory (C was successful to create 4G shared memory, using shmget function) I wander IPC::SharedMem is not supporting 64 bit os? Actually is the argument $SIZE of IPC::SharedMem limited as 4byte signed integer?

Hi, thanks for the report, but the problem is not within IPC::SharedMem. IPC::SharedMem uses perl's shmget() function, which indeed only uses a signed 32-bit integer in its implementation. As soon as this is fixed in the perl core, IPC::SharedMem should work as expected. I've opened a ticket in the perl bug tracker and added you to the CC list: http://rt.perl.org/rt3/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=63924 Marcus
