POSIX signal handling



Thanks again for your kind answer. 

Actually we've had that very output... since the beginning :)
Ever since the problem for us is we're expecting not the signal to be pending, but otherwise that the handler *sig_handler* runs when the signal is received!
 
We're running the same code, and - glad to know by comparing - no problems coming from our makefile. So we'd expect something like the output in Linux (every second):

[sbrotas at imaserver2 sigact]$ ./sigact
HANDLER: caught SIGALRM
SIGALRM not pending :)

HANDLER: caught SIGALRM
SIGALRM not pending :)

^C
[sbrotas at imaserver2 sigact]$

Best Regards
S?rgio
