NAME

dsignal.h - Contains the API for serializing signals to a pipe for usage with select() or poll().

SYNOPSIS

Functions


int daemon_signal_init (int s,...)
Installs signal handlers for the specified signals. int daemon_signal_install (int s)
Install a signal handler for the specified signal. void daemon_signal_done (void)
Free resources of signal handling, should be called before daemon exit. int daemon_signal_next (void)
Return the next signal received. int daemon_signal_fd (void)
Return the file descriptor the daemon should select() on for reading.

Detailed Description

Contains the API for serializing signals to a pipe for usage with select() or poll().

You should register all signals you wish to handle with select() in your main loop with daemon_signal_init() or daemon_signal_install(). After that you should sleep on the file descriptor returned by daemon_signal_fd() and get the next signal received with daemon_signal_next(). You should call daemon_signal_done() before exiting.

Function Documentation

void daemon_signal_done (void)

Free resources of signal handling, should be called before daemon exit.

Examples
testd.c.

int daemon_signal_fd (void)

Return the file descriptor the daemon should select() on for reading. Whenever the descriptor is ready you should call daemon_signal_next() to get the next signal queued.

Returns

The file descriptor or negative on failure

Examples
testd.c.

int daemon_signal_init (int s, ...)

Installs signal handlers for the specified signals.

Parameters

s,... The signals to install handlers for. The list should be terminated by 0

Returns

zero on success, nonzero on failure

Examples
testd.c.

int daemon_signal_install (int s)

Install a signal handler for the specified signal.

Parameters

s The signalto install handler for

Returns

zero onsuccess,nonzero on failure

int daemon_signal_next (void)

Return the next signal received. This function will not block. Instead it returns 0 if no signal is queued.

Returns

The next queued signal if one is queued, zero if none is queued, negative on failure.

Examples
testd.c.
