STRSIGNAL(3)		   Linux Programmer's Manual		  STRSIGNAL(3)

NAME
       strsignal - return string describing signal

SYNOPSIS
       #define _GNU_SOURCE
       #include	<string.h>

       char *strsignal(int sig);

       extern const char * const sys_siglist[];

DESCRIPTION
       The  strsignal()	function returns a string describing the signal	number
       passed in the argument sig.  The	string can only	be used	until the next
       call to strsignal().

       The  array  sys_siglist holds the signal	description strings indexed by
       signal number.  The strsignal() function	should	be  used  if  possible
       instead of this array.

RETURN VALUE
       The strsignal() function	returns	the appropriate	description string, or
       an unknown signal message if the	signal number  is  invalid.   On  some
       systems	(but not on Linux), a NULL pointer may be returned instead for
       an invalid signal number.

CONFORMING TO
       This function is	not part of any	standard, but may be  found  on	 Linux
       systems and some	UNIX systems (such as Solaris).

SEE ALSO
       psignal(3), strerror(3)
