signaldict


Name:
signaldict - Dictionary containing the machine-dependent signal codes.
Synopsis:
signaldict -> signaldict  

Examples:
1. signaldict /SIGTERM get %get the value for signal SIGTERM  

2. (xterm) 2 system %start an xterm-prcess
signaldict begin %open signal dictionary
SIGKILL kill %kill process
end %close dictionary

3. %This is equivalent to 2. (see description of "kill"):
(xterm) 2 system %start an xterm-process
/SIGKILL kill %kill it again

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.
