linux mqueue not available?
I need to use a message queue in my application.
and i found a few websites which describe a ready and implemented one.
it contained a few access methods like mq_open, mq_send etc., and requires a header mqueue.h
i ran a man search for the functions, yet i found nothing.
and ran a search for the mqueue.h file on the machine yet again found nothing.
however, online man pages include data about the functions.
i'm using linux 7.3 kernel 2.6.1 (recently updated)
and the mqueue should exist in this version for the best of my knowledge.
does anyone know why i can't use mqueue or where i can get a package to install to add support for it?
