ignore Command

The ignore command tells the dbx process not to catch the given signals. It is valid only in native mode.

Ignoring a signal causes dbx not to stop when the process receives that kind of signal.


ignore [number ... | signal ...]

Print a list of the ignored signals.

If a signal number is specified, ignore signal numbered number.

If a signal is specified, ignore signals named by signal. SIGKILL cannot be caught or ignored.


number is the number of a signal.

signal is the name of a signal.
