Thumbs up Signal Interrupts


Hi,

Can anybody say about 6 Signals namely
1) SIGHUP
2) SIGSTOP
3) SIGTERM
4) SIGKILL
5) SIGCONT
6) SIGSEGV

Thanks. I am confused with them. Please reply.

This is a job for Google. Do some searches and tell us exactly which part you don't understand.

If you want to get consistent help with homework, you always need to show what work you have done, and ask specific questions.

Thumbs up signal interrupts

Hi,
I did not not understand
1)difference between SIGTERM, SIGSTOP AND SIGKILL. It looks like all of them are making the process to stop but why three signals then?
2)SIGHUP

Please reply.

Here is just one of the MANY MANY hits on Google.
http://www.cs.utah.edu/dept/old/texi...ibrary_21.html

It appears to give all the details of how these signals are different.

Did you read the man page that chrism01 suggested?
