|SENDSIG(3PVM)||PVM Version 3.4||SENDSIG(3PVM)|
pvm_sendsig - Sends a signal to another PVM process.
C int info = pvm_sendsig( int tid, int signum )
Fortran call pvmfsendsig( tid, signum, info )
The routine pvm_sendsig sends the signal number signum to the PVM process identified by tid. If pvm_sendsig is successful, info will be 0. If some error occurs then info will be < 0.
pvm_sendsig should only be used by programmers with Unix signal handling experience. Many library functions (and in fact the PVM library functions) cannot be called in a signal handler context because they do not mask signals or lock internal data structures.
Further caveat: the signal numbers passed between systems are not mapped - PVM assumes that signal 9 on one system is the same as on another.
C: tid = pvm_parent(); info = pvm_sendsig( tid, SIGKILL); Fortran: CALL PVMFBUFINFO( BUFID, BYTES, TYPE, TID, INFO ); CALL PVMFSENDSIG( TID, SIGNUM, INFO )
These error conditions can be returned by pvm_sendsig
