Working With Signals

This chapter describes how to use dbx to work with signals. dbx supports the catch command, which instructs dbx to stop a program when dbx detects any of the signals appearing on the catch list.

The dbx commands cont, step, and next support the -sig signal_name option, which lets you resume execution of a program with the program behaving as if it had received the signal specified in the cont -sig command.

This chapter is organized into the following sections.
