Map the shared memory object
$map. For portable use, a shared memory object should be identified by a name of the form '/somename'; that is, a string consisting of an initial slash, followed by one or more characters, none of which are slashes.
$mode determines the read/write mode. It works the same as in open and map_file.
Beyond that it can take three named arguments:
This determines the size of the map. If the map is map has writing permissions and the file is smaller than the given size it will be lengthened. Defaults to the length of the file and fails if it is zero. It is mandatory when using mode
This determines the permissions with which the file is created (if $mode is '+>'). Default is 0600.
This determines the offset in the file that is mapped. Default is 0.
Extra flags that are used when opening the shared memory object (e.g.
Remove the shared memory object $name from the namespace. Note that while the shared memory object can't be opened anymore after this, it doesn't remove the contents until all processes have closed it.
