Hi All,

I am new to linux and so to this forum.First of all I would like to thank every one in this forum. It answered lots of my questions.

I searched for the below questions, but i could not find any concrete answers.

1) On windows , when creating a semaphore , one can set the max count ,
how is this done using posix sem_t ? sem_init() takes only the initial
value ! ??

2) What is System V ? It has some calls like semget(), semctl() etc. which
one should one use ?


if there is documentation explaining the differences , please post the link.

Thanks in advance,
Prasannaa.
