OSSP mm

OSSP mm is a 2-layer abstraction library which simplifies the usage of shared memory between related processed under Unix platforms. It both hides all platform dependent implementation details (allocation, locking, etc.) when dealing with shared memory segments and provides a high-level malloc-style API for a convenient way to work with data-structures inside those shared memory segments.
