SIGPENDING(2)		    BSD	System Calls Manual		 SIGPENDING(2)

NAME
     sigpending	-- get pending signals

LIBRARY
     Standard C	Library	(libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <signal.h>

     int
     sigpending(sigset_t *set);

DESCRIPTION
     The sigpending function returns a mask of the signals pending for deliv-
     ery to the	calling	process	in the location	indicated by set.  Signals may
     be	pending	because	they are currently masked, or they are in transition
     before delivery (although the latter case is not normally detectable).

RETURN VALUES
     A 0 value indicates that the call succeeded.  A -1	return value indicates
     an	error occurred and errno is set	to indicate the	reason.

ERRORS
     sigpending() will fail if:

     [EFAULT]		set specifies an invalid address.

SEE ALSO
     sigaction(2), sigprocmask(2), signal(7)

STANDARDS
     The sigpending function conforms to ISO/IEC 9945-1:1990 ("POSIX.1").
