I want to have a region that can be read by many applications at the same time, but only one application at the time can write.  There can be no reader during a writer.  There can be many reader at once.
I'm using MQX, witch is similar to QNX.
Maybe with mutex or semaphore components...

   Thanks in advance.

You can use Shared memory which allows to share a given region of memory for two or more applications. You can use semaphores for synchronizing the shared memory access. The system calls for
doing this are shmget (to get shared memory), shmat(to attach to shared memory segment) and shmctl( for control operations ex. removing the shared memory). For Synchronizing the shared memory use semaphore system calls namely semget ( to get a sempahore id ), semop (to perform array of operation on sempahore set) and semctl(for control operations). Hope this helps.
