Subject: [Boost-users] Boost interprocess message_queue thread-safe?
From: Rajalakshmi Iyer (raj_at_[hidden])

I am trying to use the Boost Inter-process message queue and wanted to know
the application needs to take care of synchronization.

The documentation lists 'Message queues' under the 'Synchronization'
section and mentions:

'A message queue is similar to a list of messages. Threads can put messages
in the queue and they can also remove messages from the queue'

So is the message queue thread-safe?

My use case is several multi-threaded processes on a single host writing to
the message queue and another multi-threaded process on the same host
reading from the message queue.
