function allocateSharedMemory(name, size)

Creates a shared memory object of the given size if it doesn't exist yet. If size is not given and there is no shared region with this name then the default size of 4096 is used

When the process closes, you can target another process and allocate the same block on there again. Then you can read the state before the process closed
