NAME

	GetMsg -- get next message from a message port

SYNOPSIS

	message = GetMsg(port)
D0 A0
struct Message *GetMsg(struct MsgPort *);

FUNCTION

	This function receives a message from a given message port. It
provides a fast, non-copying message receiving mechanism. The
received message is removed from the message port.
This function will not wait. If a message is not present this
function will return zero. If a program must wait for a message,
it can Wait() on the signal specified for the port or use the
WaitPort() function. There can only be one task waiting for any
given port.
Getting a message does not imply to the sender that the message is
free to be reused by the sender. When the receiver is finished
with the message, it may ReplyMsg() it back to the sender.
Getting a signal does NOT always imply a message is ready. More
than one message may arrive per signal, and signals may show up
without messages. Typically you must loop to GetMsg() until it
returns zero, then Wait() or WaitPort().

INPUTS

	port - a pointer to the receiver message port

RESULT

	message - a pointer to the first message available.  If
there are no messages, return zero.
Callers must be prepared for zero at any time.
