Shared memory between applications


#1

Is there a mean to share memory space between different applications, the same way shm/sem/msg works in unix/linux, not using the flasmemory of course.

You cannot have multiple applications in Open-AT.


#3

What do you mean “different applications”? Do you want to share the memory with another processor of sorts?

Explain in more detail…what hardware are you using?


#4

I mean 2 or more applications running within the same box, which is a Fastrack Supreme.

Unfortunately it’s true, you can’t. You run one application on the Q26 in your fastrack. The application can have multiple processes which use the same memory. You can also split the memory up into different cell’s but its still the same application thats accessing it.

Thanks a lot, I think I’ll go for multiple processes in the same application sharing the same memory space and use timers.
