#10047: Using Boost:Interprocess on Android
  Reporter: anonymous | Owner: igaztanaga

Resolution: | Keywords: Android message_queue

Comment (by Ronny Bantin):

 I have not reported this ticket. I can say this works on Android. But the
 /sdcard is mount to an flash device. So there is a significant latency and
 maybe you reduce the regular life time of the internal flash device.

 Android does not support Posix SHM. Instead, it has its own shared memory
 implementation (/dev/ashmem).
 It would be very nice to porting boost::interprocess using Android shared
 memory like "windows_shared_memory.hpp".
