Shared memory creation in ruby

Hi,

I am new to ruby and I want to write code which makes shared memory and
writes to it.Similar to the C code here:

void main(int argc, char* argv[])
{
HANDLE mappedFile = 0;
int oneSecond = 1000;
char* shared = NULL;
HANDLE eventHnd;

eventHnd = CreateEvent(NULL, FALSE, FALSE, “TestSharedEvent”);

// STEP 1
mappedFile = CreateFileMapping(INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE, NULL,
PAGE_READWRITE, 0, 4096, “TestSharedMemory”);
printf(“CreateFileMapping returned %d\n”, mappedFile);
fflush(NULL);

// STEP 2
shared = (char*)MapViewOfFile(mappedFile, FILE_MAP_WRITE, 0, 0, 0);
printf(“MapViewOfFile returned %p\n”, shared);
fflush(NULL);

memset(shared, 0, 4096);
printf(“memset worked\n”);
fflush(NULL);

int counter = 0;
while (1)
{
sprintf(shared, “value %d”, counter++);
printf(“Sending new string: %s\n”, shared);
SetEvent(eventHnd);
// STEP 5
//Sleep(1000);
}

UnmapViewOfFile(shared);
}

Please suggest .Thanks in advance.

Ahem. “int main”. (Unless you’re in a freestanding environment,
which most people aren’t.)

mappedFile = CreateFileMapping(INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE, NULL,
PAGE_READWRITE, 0, 4096, “TestSharedMemory”);

It might help readers if you mentioned what platform you were
targeting. I’ve never seen that call, so I can hardly speculate as
to what would replace it, and it seems likely that the corresponding
things might be platform specific.

Well, I’m afraid I can’t help – I know nothing about Windows
programming.
But with the information about platform in view, perhaps someone else
can help you out!
