PSIGNAL

Section: Linux Programmer's Manual (3)
Updated: 2010-10-06
Index Return to Main Contents
 

NAME

psignal, psiginfo - print signal message  

SYNOPSIS

#include <signal.h>

void psignal(int sig, const char *s);
void psiginfo(const siginfo_t *pinfo, const char *s);

extern const char *const sys_siglist[];

Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

psignal(): _SVID_SOURCE || _BSD_SOURCE
psiginfo(): _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 700 || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200809L
sys_siglist: _BSD_SOURCE  

DESCRIPTION

The psignal() function displays a message on stderr consisting of the string s, a colon, a space, a string describing the signal number sig, and a trailing newline. If the string s is NULL or empty, the colon and space are omitted. If sig is invalid, the message displayed will indicate an unknown signal.

The psiginfo() function is like psignal(), except that it displays information about the signal described by pinfo, which should point to a valid siginfo_t structure. As well as the signal description, psiginfo() displays information about the origin of the signal, and other information relevant to the signal (e.g., the relevant memory address for hardware-generated signals, the child process ID for SIGCHLD, and the user ID and process ID of the sender, for signals set using kill(2) or sigqueue(3)).

The array sys_siglist holds the signal description strings indexed by signal number.  

RETURN VALUE

The psignal() and psiginfo() functions return no value.  

VERSIONS

The psiginfo() function was added to glibc in version 2.10.  

CONFORMING TO

POSIX.1-2008, 4.3BSD.  

BUGS

In glibc versions up to 2.12, psiginfo() had the following bugs:
*
In some circumstances, a trailing newline is not printed.
*
Additional details are not displayed for real-time signals.
