NAME
ucontext.h, ucontext - user context SYNOPSIS
#include <ucontext.h> DESCRIPTION
The <ucontext.h> header defines the ucontext_t type as a structure that includes at least the following members: ucontext_t uc_link sigset_t uc_sigmask stack_t uc_stack mcontext_t uc_mcontext The uc_link member is a pointer to the context that to be resumed when this context returns. If uc_link is equal to 0, this context is the main context and the process exits when this context returns. The uc_sigmask member defines the set of signals that are blocked when this context is active. See sigprocmask(2). The uc_stack member defines the stack used by this context. See sigaltstack(2). The uc_mcontext member contains the saved set of machine registers and any implementation-specific context data. Portable applications should not modify or access uc_mcontext. ATTRIBUTES

NAME
ucontext.h - user context SYNOPSIS
#include <ucontext.h> DESCRIPTION
The <ucontext.h> header shall define the mcontext_t type through typedef. The <ucontext.h> header shall define the ucontext_t type as a structure that shall include at least the following members: ucontext_t *uc_link Pointer to the context that is resumed when this context returns. sigset_t uc_sigmask The set of signals that are blocked when this context is active. stack_t uc_stack The stack used by this context. mcontext_t uc_mcontext A machine-specific representation of the saved context. The types sigset_t and stack_t shall be defined as in <signal.h> . The following shall be declared as functions and may also be defined as macros, Function prototypes shall be provided. int getcontext(ucontext_t *); int setcontext(const ucontext_t *); void makecontext(ucontext_t *, void (*)(void), int, ...); int swapcontext(ucontext_t *restrict, const ucontext_t *restrict); The following sections are informative.
