SIGPAUSE(2)		    BSD System Calls Manual		   SIGPAUSE(2)

NAME
     sigpause — atomically release blocked signals and wait for interrupt

SYNOPSIS
     #include <signal.h>

     int
     sigpause(int sigmask);

DESCRIPTION
     This interface is made obsolete by sigsuspend(2).

     Sigpause() assigns sigmask to the set of masked signals and then waits
     for a signal to arrive; on return the set of masked signals is restored.
     Sigmask is usually 0 to indicate that no signals are to be blocked.
     Sigpause() always terminates by being interrupted, returning -1 with
     errno set to EINTR

SEE ALSO
     sigsuspend(2), kill(2), sigaction(2), sigprocmask(2), sigblock(2),
     sigvec(2)

HISTORY
     The sigpause function call appeared in 4.2BSD and has been deprecated.
