SIGWAITSection: Linux Programmer's Manual (3)
NAMEsigwait - wait for a signal
#include <signal.h> int sigwait(const sigset_t *set, int *sig);
Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):
DESCRIPTIONThe sigwait() function suspends execution of the calling thread until one of the signals specified in the signal set setbecomes pending. The function accepts the signal (removes it from the pending list of signals), and returns the signal number in sig.
The operation of sigwait() is the same as sigwaitinfo(2), except that:
- sigwait() returns only the signal number, rather than a siginfo_tstructure describing the signal.
- The return values of the two functions are different.
RETURN VALUEOn success, sigwait() returns 0. On error, it returns a positive error number (listed in ERRORS).
- setcontains an invalid signal number.
ATTRIBUTESFor an explanation of the terms used in this section, see attributes(7).
CONFORMING TOPOSIX.1-2001, POSIX.1-2008.
NOTESsigwait() is implemented using sigtimedwait(2).
The glibc implementation of sigwait() silently ignores attempts to wait for the two real-time signals that are used internally by the NPTL threading implementation. See nptl(7) for details.
