Close shared memory block
(PHP 4 >= 4.0.4, PHP 5)
Example 2231. Closing shared memory block
Code Examples / Notes » shmop_close
shmop_close doesn't delete the memory segment, it just detaches from it.
If you have created the block and need to delete it you must call shmop_delete **BEFORE** calling shmop_close (for reasons outlined in shmop_delete help page notes).
