shmop_read() reads and returns a string from the shared memory segment identified by shmop_id . start gives the offset in bytes from the beginning of the shared memory segment from which to start reading (starting from 0), and count gives the number of bytes to read from that point. If either of these values is out of range, or if shmop_id is not a valid identifier as returned by shmop_open() , shmop_read() returns FALSE.
In order to read all data from a segment, you can supply start and count values of 0.
