raise - send a signal to the current process
#include <signal.h> int raise(int sig);
The raise() function sends the signal sig to the current process.
Upon successful completion, a value of 0 is returned. Otherwise, a value of -1 is returned and the global variable errno is set to indicate the error.
The raise() function may fail and set errno for any of the errors speci- fied for the library functions getpid(2) and kill(2).
The raise() function conforms to ANSI X3.159-1989 ("ANSI C"). MirOS BSD #10-current June 4, 1993 1
