SIGSETMASK(2)		 DragonFly System Calls Manual		 SIGSETMASK(2)

NAME

sigsetmask -- set current signal mask

LIBRARY

Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS

#include <signal.h> int sigsetmask(int mask); sigmask(signum);

DESCRIPTION

This interface is made obsolete by: sigprocmask(2). Sigsetmask() sets the current signal mask. Signals are blocked from delivery if the corresponding bit in mask is a 1; the macro sigmask() is provided to construct the mask for a given signum. The system quietly disallows SIGKILL or SIGSTOP to be blocked.

RETURN VALUES

The previous set of masked signals is returned.
