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

STRSIGNAL(3)			    Linux Programmer's Manual			     STRSIGNAL(3)

NAME
       strsignal - return string describing signal

SYNOPSIS
       #define _GNU_SOURCE
       #include <string.h>

       char *strsignal(int sig);

       extern const char * const sys_siglist[];

DESCRIPTION
       The strsignal() function returns a string describing the signal number passed in the argu-
       ment sig.  The string can only be used until the next call to strsignal().

       The array sys_siglist holds the signal description strings indexed by signal number.   The
       strsignal() function should be used if possible instead of this array.

RETURN VALUE
       The  strsignal() function returns the appropriate description string, or an unknown signal
       message if the signal number is invalid.  On some systems  (but	not  on  Linux),  a  NULL
       pointer may be returned instead for an invalid signal number.

CONFORMING TO
       This function is not part of any standard, but may be found on Linux systems and some UNIX
       systems (such as Solaris).

SEE ALSO
       psignal(3), strerror(3)
