RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for sigpause (redhat section 2)

SIGPAUSE(2)			    Linux Programmer's Manual			      SIGPAUSE(2)

NAME
       sigpause - atomically release blocked signals and wait for interrupt

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  ter-
       minates by being interrupted, returning -1 with errno set to EINTR.

CONFORMING TO
       4.4BSD.	The sigpause function call appeared in 4.3BSD and is deprecated.
