NAME

sigpending – get pending signals

CONTENTS

LIBRARY

Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS

#include <signal.h>

int
sigpending(sigset_t *set);

DESCRIPTION

The sigpending() system call returns a mask of the signals pending for delivery to the calling thread or the calling process in the location indicated by set. Signals may be pending because they are currently masked, or transiently before delivery (although the latter case is not normally detectable).

RETURN VALUES

The sigpending function returns the value 0 if successful; otherwise the value -1 is returned and the global variable errno is set to indicate the error.

ERRORS

The sigpending() system call will fail if:
[EFAULT]
  The set argument specified an invalid address.

SEE ALSO

sigaction(2), sigprocmask(2), sigsuspend(2), sigsetops(3)

STANDARDS

The sigpending() system call is expected to conform to IEEE Std 1003.1-90 ("POSIX.1").

Do you laugh when the waiter drops a tray full of dishes? Unix weenies do. They're the first ones to laugh at hapless users, trying to figure out an error message that doesn't have anything to do with what they just typed.
