     The sigrelse() function removes the signal sig from the calling process'
     signal mask.

RETURN VALUES
     If successful, the sigrelse() function returns 0.  Otherwise -1 is
     returned and errno is set to indicate the error.

ERRORS
     The sigrelse() function will fail if:

     [EINVAL]           The argument sig is not a valid signal number.

SEE ALSO

STANDARDS
     The sigrelse() function conforms to IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 (``POSIX.1'').
     It was however marked as obsolete in the IEEE Std 1003.1-2008
     (``POSIX.1'') revision of the standard.
