NAME
     ipcrm -- remove the specified message queues, semaphore sets, and shared
     segments

SYNOPSIS
     ipcrm [-q msqid] [-m shmid] [-s semid] [-Q	msgkey]	[-M shmkey]
	   [-S semkey] ...

DESCRIPTION
     The ipcrm utility removes the specified message queues, semaphores	and
     shared memory segments.  These System V IPC objects can be	specified by
     their creation id or any associated key.

     The following options are used to specify which IPC objects will be
     removed.  Any number and combination of these options can be used:

     -q	msqid
	     Remove the	message	queue associated with the id msqid from	the
	     system.

     -m	shmid
	     Mark the shared memory segment associated with id shmid for
	     removal.  This marked segment will	be destroyed after the last
	     detach.

     -s	semid
	     Remove the	semaphore set associated with id semid from the	sys-
	     tem.

     -Q	msgkey
	     Remove the	message	queue associated with key msgkey from the sys-
	     tem.

     -M	shmkey
	     Mark the shared memory segment associated with key	shmkey for
	     removal.  This marked segment will	be destroyed after the last
	     detach.

     -S	semkey
	     Remove the	semaphore set associated with key semkey from the sys-
	     tem.

     The identifiers and keys associated with these System V IPC objects can
     be	determined by using ipcs(1).
