IPC Mechanisms

some UNIX gurus please tell me how ipc mechanisms, (like message queues and semaphores work) in simple words. i tried reading some of the books, but they were all hazy(to me, of course). so pls don't recommend me any reading material. i wud appreciate if the mechanisms were illustrated using sample programs.
