Linux 2.6 - man page for _setjmp (linux section 3posix)

_LONGJMP(P)			    POSIX Programmer's Manual			      _LONGJMP(P)

NAME
       _longjmp, _setjmp - non-local goto

SYNOPSIS
       #include <setjmp.h>

       void _longjmp(jmp_buf env, int val);
       int _setjmp(jmp_buf env);

DESCRIPTION
       The  _longjmp()	and  _setjmp()	functions  shall be equivalent to longjmp() and setjmp(),
       respectively, with the additional restriction that  _longjmp()  and  _setjmp()  shall  not
       manipulate the signal mask.

       If  _longjmp()  is called even though env was never initialized by a call to _setjmp(), or
       when the last such call was in a function that has since returned, the results  are  unde-
       fined.

RETURN VALUE
       Refer to longjmp() and setjmp() .

ERRORS
       No errors are defined.

       The following sections are informative.

EXAMPLES
       None.

APPLICATION USAGE
       If  _longjmp()  is  executed and the environment in which _setjmp() was executed no longer
       exists, errors can occur.  The conditions under which the environment of the _setjmp()  no
       longer  exists  include exiting the function that contains the _setjmp() call, and exiting
       an inner block with temporary storage.  This condition might not be detectable,	in  which
       case  the  _longjmp() occurs and, if the environment no longer exists, the contents of the
       temporary storage of an inner block are unpredictable. This  condition  might  also  cause
       unexpected process termination. If the function has returned, the results are undefined.

       Passing	longjmp()  a  pointer  to  a buffer not created by setjmp(), passing _longjmp() a
       pointer to a buffer not created by _setjmp(), passing siglongjmp() a pointer to	a  buffer
       not created by sigsetjmp(), or passing any of these three functions a buffer that has been
       modified by the user can cause all the problems listed above, and more.

       The _longjmp() and _setjmp() functions are included to support programs written to histor-
       ical  system interfaces.  New applications should use siglongjmp() and sigsetjmp() respec-
       tively.

RATIONALE
       None.

FUTURE DIRECTIONS
       The _longjmp() and _setjmp() functions may be marked LEGACY in a future version.
