Name
       sigblock	- block	signals

Syntax
       sigblock(mask)
       int mask;

Description
       The system call causes the signals specified in mask to be added	to the
       set of signals currently	being blocked  from  delivery.	 Signal	 i  is
       blocked if the ith bit in mask is a 1.

       silently	imposed	by the system.

       The previous set	of masked signals is returned.
