Async-Signal-Safe Functions in Oracle Solaris Threads

Functions that can safely be called from signal handlers are Async-Signal-Safe. The IEEE Std 1003.1–2004 (POSIX) standard defines Async-Signal-Safe functions, which are listed in Table 5-2. In addition to these standard Async-Signal-Safe functions, the following functions from the Oracle Solaris threads interface are also Async-Signal-Safe:
