** prshma.h -- NSPR Anonymous Shared Memory
**
** NSPR provides an anonymous shared memory based on NSPR's PRFileMap
** type. The anonymous file-mapped shared memory provides an inheritable
** shared memory, as in: the child process inherits the shared memory.
** Compare the file-mapped anonymous shared memory to to a named shared
** memory described in prshm.h. The intent is to provide a shared
** memory that is accessable only by parent and child processes. ...
** It's a security thing.
** 
** Depending on the underlying platform, the file-mapped shared memory
** may be backed by a file. ... surprise! ... On some platforms, no
** real file backs the shared memory. On platforms where the shared
** memory is backed by a file, the file's name in the filesystem is
** visible to other processes for only the duration of the creation of
** the file, hopefully a very short time. This restricts processess
** that do not inherit the shared memory from opening the file and
** reading or writing its contents. Further, when all processes
** using an anonymous shared memory terminate, the backing file is
** deleted. ... If you are not paranoid, you're not paying attention.
** 
** The file-mapped shared memory requires a protocol for the parent
** process and child process to share the memory. NSPR provides two
** protocols. Use one or the other; don't mix and match.
** 
** In the first protocol, the job of passing the inheritable shared
** memory is done via helper-functions with PR_CreateProcess(). In the
** second protocol, the parent process is responsible for creating the
** child process; the parent and child are mutually responsible for
** passing a FileMap string. NSPR provides helper functions for
** extracting data from the PRFileMap object. ... See the examples
** below.
** 
** Both sides should adhere strictly to the protocol for proper
** operation. The pseudo-code below shows the use of a file-mapped
** shared memory by a parent and child processes. In the examples, the
** server creates the file-mapped shared memory, the client attaches to
** it.
**
** First protocol.
** Server:
**
**   fm = PR_OpenAnonFileMap(dirName, size, FilemapProt); 
**   addr = PR_MemMap(fm); 
**   attr = PR_NewProcessAttr();
**   PR_ProcessAttrSetInheritableFileMap( attr, fm, shmname );
**   PR_CreateProcess(Client); 
**   PR_DestroyProcessAttr(attr);
**   ... yadda ...
**   PR_MemUnmap( addr );
**   PR_CloseFileMap(fm);
**
**
** Client: 
**   ... started by server via PR_CreateProcess()
**   fm = PR_GetInheritedFileMap( shmname );
**   addr = PR_MemMap(fm);
**   ... yadda ...
**   PR_MemUnmap(addr);
**   PR_CloseFileMap(fm);
**
**
** Second Protocol:
** Server:
**
**   fm = PR_OpenAnonFileMap(dirName, size, FilemapProt); 
**   fmstring = PR_ExportFileMapAsString( fm );
**   addr = PR_MemMap(fm); 
**    ... application specific technique to pass fmstring to child
**    ... yadda ... Server uses his own magic to create child
**   PR_MemUnmap( addr );
**   PR_CloseFileMap(fm);
**
**
** Client: 
**   ... started by server via his own magic
**   ... application specific technique to find fmstring from parent
**   fm = PR_ImportFileMapFromString( fmstring )
**   addr = PR_MemMap(fm);
**   ... yadda ...
**   PR_MemUnmap(addr);
**   PR_CloseFileMap(fm);
**
**
** lth. 2-Jul-1999.
**
** Note: The second protocol was requested by NelsonB (7/1999); this is
** to accomodate servers which already create their own child processes
** using platform native methods.

/*
** PR_OpenAnonFileMap() -- Creates an anonymous file-mapped shared memory
**
** Description:
** PR_OpenAnonFileMap() creates an anonymous shared memory. If the
** shared memory already exists, a handle is returned to that shared
** memory object.
**
** On Unix platforms, PR_OpenAnonFileMap() uses 'dirName' as a
** directory name, without the trailing '/', to contain the anonymous
** file. A filename is generated for the name.
**
** On Windows platforms, dirName is ignored.
**
** Inputs:
**   dirName -- A directory name to contain the anonymous file.
**   size -- The size of the shared memory
**   prot -- How the shared memory is mapped. See prio.h
**   
** Outputs:
**   PRFileMap *
**
** Returns:
**   Pointer to PRFileMap or NULL on error.
