Function to allocate process sharable memory

Recommended Posts

Richard Robertson

There's a function I've used in the past but I can't remember what it is called. It's something like ProcessCoCreateMem but that's not right. I believe the function was meant for COM more than normal IPC. Does anyone have any idea what this function might be?

I've been trying to get a grasp on the C++ language lately, didn't get too far though, but I do remember stumbling into an article similar to what you describe, but I didn't really understand much and not totally sure it's what you describe since the name sounds nothing like that.

Maybe this will help? They mention a similar concept using the CreateFileMapping function.

I also noticed that there are some scripts here that give another process a pointer to a structure and allows the other process to read the data from its memory, but you've probably already seen that and doesn't sound like what you're talking about.

Edit: Microsoft also has this.

I know about file mapping but that's not quite what I'm looking for.

Such function should not exist in COM world.

@JohnOne: No those aren't what I'm looking for but thanks.

@trancexx: Yeah I don't remember exactly if it's a COM function or not, but I can't remember what that function actually was.

I know this might not be what you were thinking of.

Apparently boost library has something like this.

Afraid it doesn't help me because I'm not using C++.
