mi.wait.h   [plain text]


/* The <sys/wait.h> header contains macros related to wait(). The value
 * returned by wait() and waitpid() depends on whether the process 
 * terminated by an exit() call, was killed by a signal, or was stopped
 * due to job control, as follows:
 *
 *				 High byte   Low byte
 *				+---------------------+
 *	exit(status)		|  status  |    0     |
 *				+---------------------+
 *      killed by signal	|    0     |  signal  |
 *				+---------------------+
 *	stopped (job control)	|  signal  |   0177   |
 *				+---------------------+
