Technical Report No. UCB/CSD-83-145
July 1983

This document provides an introduction to the interprocess communication facilities included in the 4.2bsd release of the VAX UNIX system.

It discusses the overall model for interprocess communication and introduces the interprocess communication primitives which have been added to the system. The majority of the document considers the use of these primitives in developing applications. The reader is expected to be familiar with the C programming language as all examples are written in C.
