ipcrm command in Linux with examples

ipcrm command in Linux is used to remove some IPC(Inter-Process Communication) resources. It eliminates the IPC objects and their associated data structure form the system. One must be a creator or superuser or the owner of the object in order to remove these objects. There are three types of System V IPC objects i.e. semaphores,shared memory, and message queues.


When all the currently attached processes will remove the object from their virtual address space then only shared memory object can be removed.
