raise - send a signal to the executing thread SYNOPSIS
#include <signal.h> int raise(int sig); The raise() function sends the signal sig to the executing thread. If a signal handler is called, the raise function does not return until after the signal handler returns. The effect of the raise function is equivalent to calling: pthread_kill(pthread_self(), sig); See the pthread_kill(3C) manual page for a detailed list of failure conditions and the signal.h(3HEAD) manual page for a list of signals. Upon successful completion, 0 is returned. Otherwise, -1 is returned and errno is set to indicate the error.
