SIGPAUSE(3)			   BSD Library Functions Manual 		      SIGPAUSE(3)

NAME
     sigpause -- atomically release blocked signals and wait for interrupt

LIBRARY
     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <signal.h>

     int
     sigpause(int sigmask);

DESCRIPTION
     This interface is made obsolete by sigsuspend(2).

     sigpause() assigns sigmask to the set of masked signals and then waits for a signal to
     arrive; on return the set of masked signals is restored.  sigmask is usually 0 to indicate
     that no signals are to be blocked.  sigpause() always terminates by being interrupted,
     returning -1 with errno set to EINTR.

SEE ALSO
     kill(2), sigaction(2), sigprocmask(2), sigsuspend(2), sigblock(3), sigvec(3)

HISTORY
     The sigpause() function call appeared in 4.2BSD and has been deprecated.
