.Fa "int sig"
.Fc
.Sh DESCRIPTION
The
.Fn raise_default_signal
function raises the default signal handler for the signal
.Fa sig .
This function may be used by a user-defined signal handler router
to ensure that a parent process receives the correct notification
of a process termination by a signal.
This can be used to avoid a common programming mistake
when terminating a process from a custom
.Dv SIGINT
or
.Dv SIGQUIT
signal handler.
.Pp
The operations performed are:
.Bl -enum -offset indent
.It
Block all signals, using
.Xr sigprocmask 2 .
.It
Set the signal handler for signal
.Fa sig
to the default signal handler
.Dv ( SIG_DFL ) .
.It
.Xr raise 3
signal
.Fa sig .

Unblock signal
.Fa sig
to deliver it.

even if there was a failure.
.El

See
.Xr signal 7
for a table of signals and default actions.
.Pp
The
.Fn raise_default_signal
function should be async-signal-safe.
.Sh RETURN VALUES

Otherwise, a value of \-1 is returned and the global variable
.Va errno
is set to indicate the error.
.Sh ERRORS

.Fn raise_default_signal
function may fail and set
.Va errno
for any of the errors specified for the functions
.Xr sigemptyset 3 ,
.Xr sigfillset 3 ,
.Xr sigaddset 3 ,
.Xr sigprocmask 2 ,
.Xr sigaction 2 ,
or
.Xr raise 3 .
