The Win32::Semaphore module implements semaphores, synchronizing access to shared resources. The constructor new creates a new semaphore object and sets the initial count and the maximum count of the semaphore. The constructor has the following syntax:
$sem = Win32::Semaphore->new(init, max, [name]);
The arguments are defined as follows:
$sem = Win32::Semaphore->open(name);
The following methods can be used on Win32::Semaphore objects.
