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

     sigaddset, sigdelset, sigemptyset, sigfillset, sigismember -- manipulate signal sets

     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

     #include <signal.h>

     sigaddset(sigset_t *set, int signo);

     sigdelset(sigset_t *set, int signo);

     sigemptyset(sigset_t *set);

     sigfillset(sigset_t *set);

     sigismember(const sigset_t *set, int signo);

     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.

     These functions are provided as macros in the include file <signal.h>.  Actual functions are available
     if their names are undefined (with #undef name).

     The sigismember() function returns 1 if the signal is a member of the set, 0 otherwise.  The other
     functions return 0.

     Currently, no errors are detected.

     kill(2), sigaction(2), sigsuspend(2)

     These functions are defined by IEEE Std 1003.1-1988 (``POSIX.1'').

BSD                              June 4, 1993                              BSD
