Doubt with shared memory (IPC).


Hello,

I have a doubt about shared memory, but I do not known how to explain it.

I have two process, and these process need to comunicate a struct.
This struct are declare in both process.
When I launch these process, both try to create a shared memory, and after it obtain a pointer to this zone.

My question is:

is this shared memory other zone of memory???
where is this zone of memory??

I'll continue to look for more information.

Best regards
