       sigemptyset, sigfillset, sigaddset, sigdelset, sigismember - POSIX signal set operations.


       #include <signal.h>

       int sigemptyset(sigset_t *set);

       int sigfillset(sigset_t *set);

       int sigaddset(sigset_t *set, int signum);

       int sigdelset(sigset_t *set, int signum);

       int sigismember(const sigset_t *set, int signum);

   Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

       sigemptyset(), sigfillset(), sigaddset(), sigdelset(), sigismember():


       These functions allow the manipulation of POSIX signal sets.

       sigemptyset()  initializes the signal set given by set to empty, with all signals excluded
       from the set.

       sigfillset() initializes set to full, including all signals.

       sigaddset() and sigdelset() add and delete respectively signal signum from set.

       sigismember() tests whether signum is a member of set.

       Objects of type sigset_t must  be  initialized  by  a  call  to  either  sigemptyset()  or
       sigfillset()   before   being   passed  to  the  functions  sigaddset(),  sigdelset()  and
       sigismember()  or  the  additional  glibc  functions  described  below   (sigisemptyset(),
       sigandset(), and sigorset()).  The results are undefined if this is not done.


       sigemptyset(),  sigfillset(),  sigaddset(),  and sigdelset() return 0 on success and -1 on

       sigismember() returns 1 if signum is a member of set, 0 if signum is not a member, and  -1
       on error.  On error, these functions set errno to indicate the cause.


       EINVAL sig is not a valid signal.




   Glibc notes
       If  the  _GNU_SOURCE  feature  test  macro is defined, then <signal.h> exposes three other
       functions for manipulating signal sets.

       int sigisemptyset(sigset_t *set);
              returns 1 if set contains no signals, and 0 otherwise.

       int sigorset(sigset_t *dest, sigset_t *left, sigset_t *right);
              places the union of the sets left and right in dest.

       int sigandset(sigset_t *dest, sigset_t *left, sigset_t *right);
              places the intersection of the sets left and right in dest.

       sigorset() and sigandset() return 0 on success, and -1 on failure.

       These functions are nonstandard (a few other systems provide similar functions) and  their
       use should be avoided in portable applications.
