Gnus/5.110003 (No Gnus v0.3) Emacs/21.3 (gnu/linux)
I added SA_NOCLDSTOP to the sigaction description, and tried to make
it clearer the flags are variables.
FLAGS is a `logior' (*note Bitwise Operations::) of the following
(where provided by the system), or `0' for none.
-- Variable: SA_NOCLDSTOP
By default, `SIGCHLD' is signalled when a child process stops
(ie. receives `SIGSTOP'), and when a child process terminates.
With the `SA_NOCLDSTOP' flag, `SIGCHLD' is only signalled for
termination, not stopping.
`SA_NOCLDSTOP' has no effect on signals other than `SIGCHLD'.
-- Variable: SA_RESTART
If a signal occurs while in a system call, deliver the signal
then restart the system call (as opposed to returning an
`EINTR' error from that call).
Guile always enables this flag where available, no matter what
FLAGS are specified. This avoids spurious error returns in
low level operations.
