NAME
       psignal, sys_siglist - system signal messages

SYNOPSIS
       psignal(sig, s)
       unsigned sig;
       char *s;

       char *sys_siglist[];

DESCRIPTION
       Psignal	produces a short message on the standard error file describing the indicated sig-
       nal.  First the argument string s is printed, then a colon, then the name  of  the  signal
       and  a  new-line.   Most  usefully,  the  argument string is the name of the program which
       incurred the signal.  The signal number should be from among those found in <signal.h>.

       To simplify variant formatting of signal names, the vector of message strings  sys_siglist
       is  provided;  the  signal  number can be used as an index in this table to get the signal
       name without the newline.  The define NSIG defined in <signal.h> is the number of messages
       provided  for  in  the table; it should be checked because new signals may be added to the
       system before they are added to the table.
