/*!
 * \brief A reliable interprocess message queue
 *
 * The queue implements a reliable one-way channel of passing messages from one or multiple writers to a single reader.
 * The format of the messages is user-defined and must be consistent across all writers and the reader. The queue does
 * not enforce any specific format of the messages, other than they should be supplied as a contiguous array of bytes.
 *
 * The queue internally uses a process-shared storage identified by an \c object_name (the queue name). Refer to \c object_name
 * documentation for details on restrictions imposed on object names.
 *
 * The queue storage is organized as a fixed number of blocks of a fixed size. The block size must be an integer power of 2 and
 * is expressed in bytes. Each written message, together with some metadata added by the queue, consumes an integer number
 * of blocks. Each read message received by the reader releases the blocks allocated for that message. As such the maximum size
 * of a message is slightly less than block size times capacity of the queue. For efficiency, it is recommended to choose
 * block size large enough to accommodate most of the messages to be passed through the queue.
 *
 * The queue is considered empty when no messages are enqueued (all blocks are free). The queue is considered full at the point
 * of enqueueing a message when there is not enough free blocks to accommodate the message.
 *
 * The queue is reliable in that it will not drop successfully sent messages that are not received by the reader, other than the
 * case when a non-empty queue is destroyed by the last user. If a message cannot be enqueued by the writer because the queue is
 * full, the queue can either block the writer or return an error or throw an exception, depending on the policy specified at
 * the queue creation. The policy is object local, i.e. different writers and the reader can have different overflow policies.
 *
 * If the queue is empty and the reader attempts to dequeue a message, it will block until a message is enqueued by a writer.
 *
 * A blocked reader or writer can be unblocked by calling \c stop_local. After this method is called, all threads blocked on
 * this particular object are released and return \c operation_result::aborted. The other instances of the queue (in the current
 * or other processes) are unaffected. In order to restore the normal functioning of the queue instance after the \c stop_local
 * call the user has to invoke \c reset_local.
 *
 * The queue does not guarantee any particular order of received messages from different writer threads. Messages sent by a
 * particular writer thread will be received in the order of sending.
 *
 * Methods of this class are not thread-safe, unless otherwise specified.
