.Sh NAME
.Nm siginfo
.Nd signal information
.Sh SYNOPSIS
.In signal.h
.Sh DESCRIPTION
.Nm
is a structure type which contains information about a signal delivered
to a process.
.Pp
.Nm
includes the following members:
.Bd -literal -offset indent
int si_signo;
int si_errno;
int si_code;
.Ed
.Pp
.Fa si_signo
contains the signal number generated by the system.
.Pp
If
.Fa si_errno
is non-zero, then it contains a system specific error number associated
with this signal.
This number is defined in
.Xr errno 2 .
.Pp
If
.Fa si_code
is less than or equal to zero, the signal was generated by a user process
or a user requested service:
.Bl -tag -width SI_ASYNCIO
.It SI_USER
The signal was generated via
.Xr kill 2 .
The
.Nm
structure contains the following additional members:
.Bd -literal -offset indent
pid_t si_pid;
uid_t si_uid;
.Ed
.Pp
The
.Fa si_pid
field contains the pid of the sending process and the
.Fa si_uid
field contains the user id of the sending process.
.\" .It SI_QUEUE
.\" The signal was generated via
.\" .Xr sigqueue 3 .
.\" The
.\" .Nm
.\" structure contains the following additional members:
.\" .Bd -literal -offset indent
.\" pid_t si_pid;
.\" uid_t si_uid;
.\" sigval_t si_value;
.\" .Ed
.\" .Pp
.\" The
.\" .Fa si_pid
.\" field contains the pid of the sending process and the
.\" .Fa si_uid
.\" field contains the user id of the sending process.
.\" Finally, the
.\" .Fa si_value
.\" field contains the value sent via
.\" .Xr sigqueue 3 .
.It SI_TIMER
The signal was generated because a timer set by
.Xr timer_settime 2
has expired.
The
.Nm
structure contains the following additional members:
.Bd -literal -offset indent
sigval_t si_value;
.Ed
.Pp
The
.Fa si_value
field contains the value set via
.Xr timer_create 2 .
.It SI_ASYNCIO
The signal was generated by completion of an asynchronous I/O operation.
The
.Nm
structure contains the following additional members:
.Bd -literal -offset indent
int si_fd;
long si_band;
.Ed
.Pp
The
.Fa si_fd
argument contains the file descriptor number on which the operation was
completed and the
.Fa si_band
field contains the side and priority of the operation.
If the operation was a normal read,
.Fa si_band
will contain
.Dv POLLIN | POLLRDNORM ;
on an out-of-band read it will contain
.Dv POLLPRI | POLLRDBAND ;
on a normal write it will contain
.Dv POLLOUT | POLLWRNORM ;
on an out-of-band write it will contain
.Dv POLLPRI | POLLWRBAND .
.\" .It SI_MESGQ
.\" The signal was generated because of the arrival of a message on an empty
.\" message queue.
.\" See
.\" .Xr mq_notify 3 .
.El
.Pp
If
.Fa si_code
is positive, then it contains a signal specific reason
why the signal was generated:
.Bl -tag -width SIGCHLD
.It SIGILL
.Bl -tag -width ILL_ILLOPC
.It ILL_ILLOPC
Illegal opcode
.It ILL_ILLOPN

.It ILL_ILLTRP
Illegal trap
.It ILL_PRVOPC
Privileged opcode
.It ILL_PRVREG
Privileged register
.It ILL_COPROC
Coprocessor error
.It ILL_BADSTK
Internal stack error
.El
.It SIGFPE
.Bl -tag -width FPE_INTDIV

.Pp
For
.Dv SIGILL , SIGFPE ,

.Bd -literal -offset indent
void *si_addr;
int si_trap;
.Ed
.Pp
.Fa si_addr
contains the address of the faulting data and

.Pp
For
.Dv SIGPOLL
the
.Nm
structure contains the following additional members:
.Bd -literal -offset indent

.Pp
The
.Fa si_fd
argument contains the file descriptor number on which the operation was
completed and the

.Fa si_utime
and
.Fa si_stime
fields contain the user and system process accounting time.
