SIGSETOPS(3)               Library Functions Manual               SIGSETOPS(3)

NAME
     sigemptyset, sigfillset, sigaddset, sigdelset, sigismember -- manipulate
     signal sets

LIBRARY
     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <&lt;signal.h>&gt;

     int
     sigemptyset(sigset_t *set);

     int
     sigfillset(sigset_t *set);

     int
     sigaddset(sigset_t *set, int signo);

     int
     sigdelset(sigset_t *set, int signo);

     int
     sigismember(sigset_t *set, int signo);

DESCRIPTION
     These functions manipulate signal sets stored in a sigset_t.  Either
     sigemptyset() or sigfillset() must be called for every object of type
     sigset_t before any other use of the object.

     The sigemptyset() function initializes a signal set to be empty.

     The sigfillset() function initializes a signal set to contain all
     signals.

     The sigaddset() function adds the specified signal signo to the signal
     set.

     The sigdelset() function deletes the specified signal signo from the
     signal set.

     The sigismember() function returns whether a specified signal signo is
     contained in the signal set.

     sigemptyset() and sigfillset() are provided as macros, but actual
     functions are available if their names are undefined (with #undef name).

RETURN VALUES
     The sigismember() function returns 1 if the signal is a member of the
     set, a 0 otherwise.  The other functions return 0 upon success.  A -1
     return value indicates an error occurred and the global variable errno is
     set to indicate the reason.

ERRORS
     These functions could fail if one of the following occurs:

     [EINVAL]           signo has an invalid value.

SEE ALSO
     kill(2), sigaction(2), sigsuspend(2), signal(7)

STANDARDS
     These functions conform to IEEE Std 1003.1-1990 (``POSIX.1'').
