seem to find much information on different types of IPC in Ruby.
Usually IPC in Ruby is performed via high-level constructs rather
than sockets, pipes and shared memory.
I realize there’s sockets, but what about shared memory,
message queues, semaphores, etc.
Typically implemented via Distributed Ruby sharing a Queue or other
objects from thread.rb (both part of the standard library).
I found an extention library, sysvipc, is this it?
sysvipc sounds like a wrapper for System V IPC. You should be able
to find lots of documentation with a Google search.
I recommend you check out DRb, it makes IPC much more sane.
