STREAMS Programming Guide

Extended Signals

To let a process obtain the band and event associated with SIGPOLL more readily, STREAMS supports extended signals. For the given events, a special code is defined in <sys/siginfo.h> that describes the reason SIGPOLL was generated. Table 3-5 describes the data available in the siginfo_t structure passed to the signal handler.
