Description
A SLI dictionary containing the system's valid signal codes.
"signaldict" is used in combination with the "kill"
"wait" or "waitPID" commands.
Signal codes are machine-dependent values so do not
rely on any given value! The valid signal codes for
your machine are compiled into the "signaldict"
dictionary where they can be looked up by
their literal names.
