OK, thank you. :)

I am curious about:

Does any lock-free containers for boost::interprocess (just like

Mutex and any other sync objects does not use native win32 API to implement.
(It uses file to emulate that, right?)

Does any performance impact in win32 platform to use locks?

Does anything I should notice to use boost::interprocess in win32 platform?

I should use lock for containers to implement multiple producer consumer, or
just simply use message_queue for that?
any good suggestion or recommend?

Thank you very much.
