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



NAME
       sigemptyset, sigfillset, sigaddset, sigdelset, sigismember - POSIX sig-
       nal(2,7) set(7,n,1 builtins) operations.


SYNOPSIS
       #include <signal.h>


       int sigemptyset(sigset_t *set(7,n,1 builtins));

       int sigfillset(sigset_t *set(7,n,1 builtins));

       int sigaddset(sigset_t *set(7,n,1 builtins), int signum);

       int sigdelset(sigset_t *set(7,n,1 builtins), int signum);

       int sigismember(const sigset_t *set(7,n,1 builtins), int signum);


DESCRIPTION
       The sigsetops(3) functions allow the manipulation of POSIX signal(2,7) sets.

       sigemptyset  initializes the signal(2,7) set(7,n,1 builtins) given by set(7,n,1 builtins) to empty, with all
       signals excluded from the set.

       sigfillset initializes set(7,n,1 builtins) to full, including all signals.

       sigaddset and sigdelset add and delete respectively signal(2,7) signum  from
       set(7,n,1 builtins).

       sigismember tests whether signum is a member of set.

RETURN VALUE
       sigemptyset,  sigfillset,  sigaddset  and sigdelset return 0 on success
       and -1 on error.

       sigismember returns 1 if(3,n) signum is a member of set(7,n,1 builtins), 0 if(3,n) signum is  not
       a member, and -1 on error.

ERRORS
       EINVAL sig is not a valid signal.
