.listHash

Returns a list of signal names mapped to the corresponding underlying signal numbers.

Signal.list   #=> {"EXIT"=>0, "HUP"=>1, "INT"=>2, "QUIT"=>3, "ILL"=>4, "TRAP"=>5, "IOT"=>6, "ABRT"=>6, "FPE"=>8, "KILL"=>9, "BUS"=>7, "SEGV"=>11, "SYS"=>31, "PIPE"=>13, "ALRM"=>14, "TERM"=>15, "URG"=>23, "STOP"=>19, "TSTP"=>20, "CONT"=>18, "CHLD"=>17, "CLD"=>17, "TTIN"=>21, "TTOU"=>22, "IO"=>29, "XCPU"=>24, "XFSZ"=>25, "VTALRM"=>26, "PROF"=>27, "WINCH"=>28, "USR1"=>10, "USR2"=>12, "PWR"=>30, "POLL"=>29}

.signame(signo) ⇒ String

convert signal number to signal name

   Signal.trap("INT") { |signo| puts Signal.signame(signo) }
   Process.kill("INT", 0)

<em>produces:</em>

   INT

.trap(signal, command) ⇒ Object .trap(signal) {|| ... } ⇒ Object

Specifies the handling of signals. The first parameter is a signal name (a string such as "SIGALRM'', "SIGUSR1'', and so on) or a signal number. The characters "SIG'' may be omitted from the signal name. The command or block specifies code to be run when the signal is raised. If the command is the string "IGNORE'' or "SIG_IGN'', the signal will be ignored. If the command is "DEFAULT'' or "SIG_DFL'', the Ruby's default handler will be invoked. If the command is "EXIT'', the script will be terminated by the signal. If the command is "SYSTEM_DEFAULT'', the operating system's default handler will be invoked. Otherwise, the given command or block will be run. The special signal name "EXIT'' or signal number zero will be invoked just prior to program termination. trap returns the previous handler for the given signal.

Signal.trap(0, proc { puts "Terminating: #{$$}" })
Signal.trap("CLD")  { puts "Child died" }
fork && Process.wait

produces:

Terminating: 27461
Child died
Terminating: 27460
