SIGPAUSE(3) BSD Library Functions Manual SIGPAUSE(3)
sigpause -- atomically release blocked signals and wait for interrupt
Standard C Library (libc, -lc)
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.
kill(2), sigaction(2), sigprocmask(2), sigsuspend(2), sigblock(3), sigvec(3)
The sigpause() function call appeared in 4.2BSD and has been deprecated.
