Idris2Doc : System.Signal


Signal raising and handling.

NOTE that there are important differences between
what can be done out-of-box in Windows and POSIX based
operating systems. This module tries to honor both
by putting things only available in POSIX environments
into appropriately named namespaces or data types.
dataPosixSignal : Type
Totality: total
SigHUP : PosixSignal
  Hangup (i.e. controlling terminal closed)
SigQUIT : PosixSignal
SigTRAP : PosixSignal
  Trap (as used by debuggers)
SigUser1 : PosixSignal
SigUser2 : PosixSignal
dataSignal : Type
Totality: total
SigINT : Signal
  Interrupt (e.g. ctrl+c pressed)
SigABRT : Signal
  Abnormal termination
SigILL : Signal
  Ill-formed instruction
SigSEGV : Signal
  Segmentation fault
SigFPE : Signal
  Floating-point error
SigPosix : PosixSignal -> Signal
  Signals only available on POSIX operating systems
dataSignalError : Type
  An Error represented by a code. See
relevant `errno` documentation.

Totality: total
Error : Int -> SignalError
collectSignal : HasIOio => Signal -> io (EitherSignalError ())
  Collect the given signal.

This replaces the existing handling of the given signal
and instead results in Idris collecting occurrences of
the signal until you call `handleNextCollectedSignal`.

First, call `collectSignal` for any number of signals.
Then, call `handleNextCollectedSignal` in each main loop
of your program to retrieve (and mark as handled) the next
signal that was collected, if any.

Signals are not queued, so the return order of signals is
not specified and signals may be deduplicated.

Totality: total
defaultSignal : HasIOio => Signal -> io (EitherSignalError ())
  Use the default handler for the given signal.
You can use this function to unset custom
handling of a signal.

Totality: total
handleManyCollectedSignals : HasIOio => Fuel -> io (ListSignal)
  Get many collected signals and mark them as handled.

Use `forever` as your fuel if you don't want or need to
retain totality. Alternatively, pick a max number to
retrieve and use `limit/1` as your fuel.

Totality: total
handleNextCollectedSignal : HasIOio => io (MaybeSignal)
  Get next collected signal under the pretense of handling it.

Calling this "marks" the signal as handled so the next time
this function is called you will retrieve the next unhandled
signal instead of the same signal again.

You get back Nothing if there are no pending signals.

Totality: total
ignoreSignal : HasIOio => Signal -> io (EitherSignalError ())
  Ignore the given signal.
Be careful doing this, as most signals have useful
default behavior -- you might want to set the signal
to its default behavior instead with `defaultSignal`.

Totality: total
raiseSignal : HasIOio => Signal -> io (EitherSignalError ())
  Send a signal to the current process.
