       bsdproc:	 killpg(), getpgrp(), setpgrp(), signal(), sigvec() - 4.2 BSD-
       compatible process control facilities

   Obsolescent Interfaces
       These calls simulate (and are provided for backward compatibility with)
       functions of the same name in the 4.2 Berkeley Software Distribution.

       This version of is equivalent to the system call (see setpgid(2)).

       This version of is equivalent to the system call (see getpid(2)).

       is equivalent to the system call (see kill(2)).

       The function is no longer supported.  Please see the manpage for sigac‐

       This version of has the same effect as , where vec−>sv_handler is equal
       to  func,  vec−>sv_mask is equal to 0, and vec−>sv_flags is equal to 0.
       returns the value that would  be	 stored	 in  ovec−>sv_handler  if  the
       equivalent call would have succeeded.  Otherwise, returns −1 and is set
       to indicate the reason as it would have been set by the equivalent call

       For  applications  that use BSD signal, it is recommended that they use
       sigaction(2).  The system supports an alternative with similar behavior
       to  Berkeley  Software  Distribution, and the API is but its use is not

       While the 4.3 BSD release defined extensions to some of the  interfaces
       described  here, only the 4.2 BSD interfaces are emulated by this pack‐

       should not be used in conjunction with the facilities  described	 under

   Threads Considerations
       The signal disposition (such as	catch/ignore/default)  established  by
       and is shared by all threads in the process.

       For more information regarding signals and threads, refer to signal(5).
