signals related question

Hi all,

Just a little question relative to signals.
I know that if an application is in the sleep state, When a signal is catched, it will be processed by the handler. But what happens if it's processing something? Does the processing stops??
The following code should illustrate this case

void handleSignal(int signal){
while(my_object->getWorkingState==1)
sleep(1);
printf("anything");
}

int main(...){
....
signal(SIGUSR1,handleSignal);
while(1){
my_object->process();
sleep();
}
....
}

Thanks for the attention.
Best regards,

Ernesto

sigtrap(3pm)						 Perl Programmers Reference Guide					      sigtrap(3pm)

NAME
sigtrap - Perl pragma to enable simple signal handling SYNOPSIS
use sigtrap; use sigtrap qw(stack-trace old-interface-signals); # equivalent use sigtrap qw(BUS SEGV PIPE ABRT); use sigtrap qw(die INT QUIT); use sigtrap qw(die normal-signals); use sigtrap qw(die untrapped normal-signals); use sigtrap qw(die untrapped normal-signals stack-trace any error-signals); use sigtrap 'handler' => &my_handler, 'normal-signals'; use sigtrap qw(handler my_handler normal-signals stack-trace error-signals); DESCRIPTION
The sigtrap pragma is a simple interface to installing signal handlers. You can have it install one of two handlers supplied by sigtrap itself (one which provides a Perl stack trace and one which simply "die()"s), or alternately you can supply your own handler for it to install. It can be told only to install a handler for signals which are either untrapped or ignored. It has a couple of lists of signals to trap, plus you can supply your own list of signals. The arguments passed to the "use" statement which invokes sigtrap are processed in order. When a signal name or the name of one of sig- trap's signal lists is encountered a handler is immediately installed, when an option is encountered it affects subsequently installed han- dlers. OPTIONS
SIGNAL HANDLERS These options affect which handler will be used for subsequently installed signals. stack-trace The handler used for subsequently installed signals outputs a Perl stack trace to STDERR and then tries to dump core. This is the default signal handler. die The handler used for subsequently installed signals calls "die" (actually "croak") with a message indicating which signal was caught. handler your-handler your-handler will be used as the handler for subsequently installed signals. your-handler can be any value which is valid as an assignment to an element of %SIG. SIGNAL LISTS sigtrap has a few built-in lists of signals to trap. They are: normal-signals These are the signals which a program might normally expect to encounter and which by default cause it to terminate. They are HUP, INT, PIPE and TERM. error-signals These signals usually indicate a serious problem with the Perl interpreter or with your script. They are ABRT, BUS, EMT, FPE, ILL, QUIT, SEGV, SYS and TRAP. old-interface-signals These are the signals which were trapped by default by the old sigtrap interface, they are ABRT, BUS, EMT, FPE, ILL, PIPE, QUIT, SEGV, SYS, TERM, and TRAP. If no signals or signals lists are passed to sigtrap, this list is used. For each of these three lists, the collection of signals set to be trapped is checked before trapping; if your architecture does not imple- ment a particular signal, it will not be trapped but rather silently ignored. OTHER untrapped This token tells sigtrap to install handlers only for subsequently listed signals which aren't already trapped or ignored. any This token tells sigtrap to install handlers for all subsequently listed signals. This is the default behavior. signal Any argument which looks like a signal name (that is, "/^[A-Z][A-Z0-9]*$/") indicates that sigtrap should install a handler for that name. number Require that at least version number of sigtrap is being used. EXAMPLES
Provide a stack trace for the old-interface-signals: use sigtrap; Ditto: use sigtrap qw(stack-trace old-interface-signals); Provide a stack trace on the 4 listed signals only: use sigtrap qw(BUS SEGV PIPE ABRT); Die on INT or QUIT: use sigtrap qw(die INT QUIT); Die on HUP, INT, PIPE or TERM: use sigtrap qw(die normal-signals); Die on HUP, INT, PIPE or TERM, except don't change the behavior for signals which are already trapped or ignored: use sigtrap qw(die untrapped normal-signals); Die on receipt one of an of the normal-signals which is currently untrapped, provide a stack trace on receipt of any of the error-signals: use sigtrap qw(die untrapped normal-signals stack-trace any error-signals); Install my_handler() as the handler for the normal-signals: use sigtrap 'handler', &my_handler, 'normal-signals'; Install my_handler() as the handler for the normal-signals, provide a Perl stack trace on receipt of one of the error-signals: use sigtrap qw(handler my_handler normal-signals stack-trace error-signals); perl v5.8.0 2002-06-01 sigtrap(3pm)
