NAME
ipcrm -- remove the specified message queues, semaphore sets, and shared memory segments
SYNOPSIS
ipcrm [-M shmkey] [-m shmid] [-Q msgkey] [-q msqid] [-S semkey] [-s semid] ...
DESCRIPTION
ipcrm removes the specified message queues, semaphores, and shared memory segments. These System V IPC objects can be specified by their creation ID or any associated key. The following options are used to specify which IPC objects will be removed. Any number and combination of these options can be used: -M shmkey Mark the shared memory segment associated with key shmkey for removal. This marked segment will be destroyed after the last detach. -m shmid Mark the shared memory segment associated with ID shmid for removal. This marked segment will be destroyed after the last detach. -Q msgkey Remove the message queue associated with key msgkey from the sys- tem. -q msqid Remove the message queue associated with the ID msqid from the system. -S semkey Remove the semaphore set associated with key semkey from the sys- tem. -s semid Removes the semaphore set associated with ID semid from the sys- tem. If the id or key argument is ``all'' then all entries of the appropriate type are removed. The identifiers and keys associated with these System V IPC objects can be determined by using ipcs(1).
