function::sa_handler_str - Linux


function::sa_handler_str provides a string representation of a signal handler.


function::sa_handler_str(sigaction const& sa) -> string

| Parameter | Description |
| sa | The signal action structure to convert to a string. |




#include <iostream>
#include <signal.h>

using namespace std;

int main()
  struct sigaction sa;
  sa.sa_handler = SIG_IGN;  // Ignore the signal
  cout << signal::sa_handler_str(sa) << endl;  // "Ignore"
  return 0;

Common Issues

Ensure that the signal action structure is valid before converting it to a string. An invalid signal action structure may result in undefined behavior.


function::sa_handler_str can be used to generate strings representing signal handlers for logging or debugging purposes. It can also be used to compare signal handlers to determine if they are equivalent.
