SIGSETOPS(3)						   BSD Library Functions Manual 					      SIGSETOPS(3)

NAME
sigemptyset, sigfillset, sigaddset, sigdelset, sigismember -- manipulate signal sets LIBRARY
Standard C Library (libc, -lc) SYNOPSIS
#include <signal.h> int sigemptyset(sigset_t *set); int sigfillset(sigset_t *set); int sigaddset(sigset_t *set, int signo); int sigdelset(sigset_t *set, int signo); int sigismember(sigset_t *set, int signo); DESCRIPTION
These functions manipulate signal sets stored in a sigset_t. Either sigemptyset() or sigfillset() must be called for every object of type sigset_t before any other use of the object. The sigemptyset() function initializes a signal set to be empty. The sigfillset() function initializes a signal set to contain all signals. The sigaddset() function adds the specified signal signo to the signal set. The sigdelset() function deletes the specified signal signo from the signal set. The sigismember() function returns whether a specified signal signo is contained in the signal set. sigemptyset() and sigfillset() are provided as macros, but actual functions are available if their names are undefined (with #undef name). RETURN VALUES
The sigismember() function returns 1 if the signal is a member of the set, a 0 otherwise. The other functions return 0 upon success. A -1 return value indicates an error occurred and the global variable errno is set to indicate the reason. ERRORS
These functions could fail if one of the following occurs: [EINVAL] signo has an invalid value. SEE ALSO
kill(2), sigaction(2), sigsuspend(2), signal(7) STANDARDS
These functions conform to ISO/IEC 9945-1:1990 (``POSIX.1''). BSD
