       ipc - System V IPC system calls

       int ipc(unsigned int call, int first, int second, int third,
	       void *ptr, long fifth);

       ipc()  is  a  common  kernel entry point for the System V IPC calls for
       messages, semaphores, and shared memory.   call	determines  which  IPC
       function  to  invoke;  the  other  arguments  are passed through to the
       appropriate call.

       User programs should call the  appropriate  functions  by  their  usual
       names.	Only  standard library implementors and kernel hackers need to
       know about ipc().

       ipc() is Linux-specific, and should not be used in programs intended to
       be portable.

       On  a  few  architectures,  for	example ia64, there is no ipc() system
       call; instead msgctl(2), semctl(2), shmctl(2), and  so  on  really  are
       implemented as separate system calls.

       msgctl(2),   msgget(2),	msgrcv(2),  msgsnd(2),	semctl(2),  semget(2),
       semop(2), semtimedop(2), shmat(2), shmctl(2), shmdt(2), shmget(2)

       description  of	the project, and information about reporting bugs, can
