RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for siglongjmp (redhat section 3)

LONGJMP(3)				Library functions			       LONGJMP(3)

NAME
       longjmp, siglongjmp - non-local jump to a saved stack context

SYNOPSIS
       #include <setjmp.h>

       void longjmp(jmp_buf env, int val);
       void siglongjmp(sigjmp_buf env, int val);

DESCRIPTION
       longjmp()  and setjmp() are useful for dealing with errors and interrupts encountered in a
       low-level subroutine of a program.  longjmp() restores the environment saved by	the  last
       call  of setjmp() with the corresponding env argument.  After longjmp() is completed, pro-
       gram execution continues as if the corresponding call of setjmp() had  just  returned  the
       value  val.  longjmp() cannot cause 0 to be returned.  If longjmp is invoked with a second
       argument of 0, 1 will be returned instead.

       siglongjmp() is similar to longjmp() except for the type of  its  env  argument.   If  the
       sigsetjmp()  call  that	set  this  env	used  a  nonzero savesigs flag, siglongjmp() also
       restores the set of blocked signals.

RETURN VALUE
       These functions never return.

CONFORMING TO
       POSIX

NOTES
       POSIX does not specify whether longjmp will restore the signal context.	If  you  want  to
       save and restore signal masks, use siglongjmp.

       longjmp()  and siglongjmp() make programs hard to understand and maintain.  If possible an
       alternative should be used.
