SIGSUSPEND(2)             NetBSD System Calls Manual             SIGSUSPEND(2)


NAME
sigsuspend -- atomically release blocked signals and wait for interrupt
LIBRARY
Standard C Library (libc, -lc)
SYNOPSIS
#include <signal.h> int sigsuspend(const sigset_t *sigmask);
DESCRIPTION
sigsuspend() temporarily changes the blocked signal mask to the set to which sigmask points, and then waits for a signal to arrive; on return the previous set of masked signals is restored. The signal mask set is usually empty to indicate that all signals are to be unblocked for the duration of the call. In normal usage, a signal is blocked using sigprocmask(2) to begin a critical section, variables modified on the occurrence of the signal are examined to determine that there is no work to be done, and the process pauses awaiting work by using sigsuspend() with the previous mask returned by sigprocmask(2).
RETURN VALUES
The sigsuspend() function always terminates by being interrupted, return- ing -1 with errno set to EINTR.
SEE ALSO

STANDARDS
The sigsuspend function call conforms to ISO/IEC 9945-1:1990 (``POSIX.1''). NetBSD 8.1 May 16, 1995 NetBSD 8.1
