.Sh NAME
.Nm ucontext
.Nd user context
.Sh SYNOPSIS
.In ucontext.h
.Sh DESCRIPTION
The
.Vt ucontext_t
is a structure type which is used to describe the context of a
thread of control within the execution of a process.
A thread's context includes its stack, saved registers, and list of
blocked signals.
.Pp
The
.Vt ucontext_t
structure includes the following members:
.Bd -literal -offset indent
ucontext_t *uc_link
sigset_t    uc_sigmask
stack_t     uc_stack
mcontext_t  uc_mcontext
.Ed
.Pp
The
.Fa uc_link
member points to the context that will be resumed after the function
specified when modifying a context using
.Xr makecontext 3
has returned.
If
.Fa uc_link
is a
.Dv NULL
pointer, then the context is the main context,
and the process will exit with an exit status of 0 upon return.
.Pp
The
.Fa uc_sigmask
member is the set of signals that are blocked when the context is
activated.
Further information can be found in
.Xr sigprocmask 2 .
.Pp
The
.Fa uc_stack
member defines the stack used by the context.
Further information can be found in
.Xr sigaltstack 2 .
.Pp
The
.Fa uc_mcontext
member defines the machine state associated with the context;
it may consist of general registers, floating point registers
and other machine-specific information.
Its description is beyond the scope of this manual page;
portable applications should not access this structure member.

.Xr getcontext 2 ,

.Sh STANDARDS
The
.Vt ucontext_t
type conforms to
.St -xsh5
and
.St -p1003.1-2001 .
The
.St -p1003.1-2008
revision removed the
.Vt ucontext_t
from the specification.
