Question removing all message queues from the system

Hi All,

I am new to Linux system administration.

How can I remove "all" message queues from the system using the shell commands ?

ipcrm command requires the ID of the message queue to delete.

I do not want to specifically deal with each message queue ID to remove.

What is the easiest way ?

Look at man msgctl ... this doesn't use "shell commands", but I don't know of anything that does.
