Initializes the program fault management (PFM) package.
#include <idl/c/base.h> #include <idl/c/pfm.h>
void pfm_$init (flags)
unsigned long flags;
The pfm_$init routine initializes the PFM package. Applications that use the PFM package should invoke the pfm_$init routine before invoking any other Network Computing System (NCS) routines.
|flags||Indicates which initialization activities to perform. Currently only one value is valid: pfm_$init_signal_handlers. This causes C signals to be intercepted and converted to PFM signals. The signals intercepted are SIGINT, SIGILL, SIGFPE, SIGTERM, SIGHUP, SIGQUIT, SIGTRAP, SIGBUS, SIGSEGV, and SIGSYS.|
