SIGPAUSE(2)		    BSD	System Calls Manual		   SIGPAUSE(2)

NAME
     sigpause -- atomically release blocked signals and	wait for interrupt

LIBRARY
     Standard C	Library	(libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <signal.h>

     int
     sigpause(int sigmask);

DESCRIPTION
     This interface is made obsolete by	sigsuspend(2).

     Sigpause()	assigns	sigmask	to the set of masked signals and then waits
     for a signal to arrive; on	return the set of masked signals is restored.
     Sigmask is	usually	0 to indicate that no signals are to be	blocked.
     Sigpause()	always terminates by being interrupted,	returning -1 with
     errno set to EINTR

SEE ALSO
     kill(2), sigaction(2), sigblock(2), sigprocmask(2), sigsuspend(2),
     sigvec(2)

HISTORY
     The sigpause() function call appeared in 4.2BSD and has been deprecated.
