If the message is too large to fit in the queue, your script will wait
until another process reads messages from the queue and frees enough
space for your message to be sent.
This is called blocking; you can prevent blocking by setting the
blocking parameter to

FALSE if the
message is too big for the queue, and set the optional

FALSE on failure.
Upon successful completion the message queue data structure is updated as
msg_lspid is set to the process-ID of the
msg_qnum is incremented by 1 and
msg_stime is set to the current time.
