e_wakeup_w_sig Kernel Service


Posts a signal to sleeping kernel threads.


#include <sys/sleep.h>
void e_wakeup_w_sig (event_word, sig)
int *event_word;
int sig;


event_word Specifies the shared event word. The kernel uses the event_word parameter as the anchor to the list of threads waiting on this shared event.
sig Specifies the signal number to post.


The e_wakeup_w_sig kernel service posts the signal sig to each kernel thread sleeping interruptible on the event list anchored by the event_word parameter.

The e_wakeup_w_sig kernel service has no return values.

Execution Environment

The e_wakeup_w_sig kernel service can be called from either the process environment or the interrupt environment.

Implementation Specifics

The e_wakeup_w_sig kernel service is part of the Base Operating System (BOS) Runtime.
