NAME

       CURLOPT_NOSIGNAL - skip all signal handling

SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_NOSIGNAL, long onoff);

DESCRIPTION

       If  onoff  is  1,  libcurl  will not use any functions that install signal handlers or any
       functions that cause signals to be sent to the process.  This  option  is  here  to  allow
       multi-threaded unix applications to still set/use all timeout options etc, without risking
       getting signals.

       If this option is set and libcurl has been built with the standard name resolver, timeouts
       will  not occur while the name resolve takes place.  Consider building libcurl with the c-
       ares or threaded resolver backends to enable asynchronous DNS lookups, to enable  timeouts
       for name resolves without the use of signals.

       Setting  CURLOPT_NOSIGNAL(3)  to  1  makes  libcurl  NOT  ask the system to ignore SIGPIPE
       signals, which otherwise are sent by the system when trying to send data to a socket which
       is  closed  in  the  other  end.  libcurl  makes an effort to never cause such SIGPIPEs to
       trigger, but some operating systems have no way to avoid them and even on those that  have
       there  are  some  corner  cases  when  they  may  still happen, contrary to our desire. In
       addition, using CURLAUTH_NTLM_WB authentication could cause a SIGCHLD signal to be raised.
