Programming :: [C++] Cannot Catch SIGPIPE Signal?

Mar 27, 2011

I have a Socket library, written in C++, in which the method used to send data never has the opportunity to handle an errno of SIGPIPE. Thus I thought perhaps I should setup a signal handler to receive the signal, but this too is not being called.Is there something that I am missing or doing that is completely wrong? Below is the relevant code. Note that a SIGPIPE signal is generated when the Server is unable to send data to the Client (e.g. the client has terminated).Server code:

#include <TCPServerSocket.hpp>
#include <string>

Programming :: Unable To Catch The SIGTERM Signal?

Apr 25, 2011

But unable to catch the SIGTERM signal if I do shutdown, as man pages says shutdown genrates the SIGTERM and SIGKILL signals, but we cant handle the SIGKILL signal. My code is working fine if I genrate the SIGTERM signal by Kill command, and also for SIGINT signgal genrated from the CTRL+c key.

Here is my code:

/* Example of using sigaction() to setup a signal handler with 3 arguments
* including siginfo_t.
#include <stdio.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <signal.h>
#include <string.h>

Programming :: Sets Sigpipe's Default Action To Ignore And Opens A Socket?

Jul 27, 2011

I'm studying an OS programming book, in particular network sockets. I have two questions(2nd one is down at the bottom). There is something I don't quite understand. What if this piece of code, which sets sigpipe's default action to ignore and opens a socket:

if ((u_ignore_sigpipe() != 0) || ((sock = socket(AF_INET, SOCK_STREAM, 0)) == -1))
return -1;

Programming :: Catch Some Outputs In Two Different Log Files In Bash?

Jan 26, 2009

I want to catch some outputs in two different log files in bash, file simple.log and all.log So far, the script is started like this:


xterm -e "(./ | tee -a simple.log) >& all.log"

What I want is:

- In simple.log, I want all the stdout but WITHOUT errors.

- In all.log I want BOTH stdout and stderr.

So all is ok, and the output becomes:



starting copying files
mv: cannot move ... : permission denied
copying completed
simple log


starting copying files
copying completed

But, in the new xterm, I'm loosing stdout. There is no output.How can I have the files logged as they are but also have the stdout in the xterm.

Programming :: Catch User Input While The Bash Script Is Running?

Oct 30, 2010

How do you catch user input while the script is running? Or, how would you make two scripts run at the same time, but use input from one script to the other? The program I'm trying to make, echos text on the screen continuously, but while thats happening, I want the user to be able to input something, so the program can detect the input and display something else. So I thought maybe I could make two scripts run to do each task.

Programming :: Signal Emitted With CTL+D In Bash?

Oct 22, 2010

I'm doing the shell history audit logging using syslog to gather the command history. I'm using this well publicized method using trap and logger:

declare -r REAL_LOGNAME=`/usr/bin/who am i | cut -d" " -f1`
function log2syslog {
declare command
command=`fc -ln -0`
logger -p local1.notice -t bash -i ": $REAL_LOGNAME as $LOGNAME :$command"
trap log2syslog DEBUG TERM

The problem is that the trap on DEBUG will catch the next to last command executed (by virtue of the "fc" command) which is not the current command executed. TERM will catch that "next to last" command on exit, thus completing the logging of each command executed during that session.

However, CTL+D doesn't seem to emit a SIGTERM signal. What signal is actually being emitted and can it be trapped? I guess another question would be whether there is a way to trap history after command line execution? Moving to Bash 4.1 isn't possible in our "supported" multi-platform environment

Programming :: Sequencing With Raising A Signal Method?

Mar 4, 2010

I was trying to program using fork(). The objective of this code is to

1. I am activating a process A - SubSuctionMotors.
2. Process A is going to stop with either of this condition
a) Switch is activated - swret=1
b) Time allowed has expired
3. Stop the process A.


1. We purposely force the switch to be inactive to test the child process (timer), whether after 2 seconds the motor stop. It turns out to be successful in first few attempts. After some while, the program hang, nothing is executed anymore and the program is not exit or terminated. What can cause the program to hang?

2. We tried to stop motor by switch activation (if the switch is to be successfully activated, the time it takes will always be shorter than the timer allowed time). However, the program did not seems like noticing the switch has been activated, and it just stop the motor according to timer. Why it behave this way?

Debian Programming :: Serial Port Signal Handler

Jan 14, 2015

Basically I'm intending to write serial RX signal handler.Application receives defined packages of data over serial which contains header and payload. Handler should analyse incoming stream and upon detection of header (header is 6B in length) switches to receive payload of length defined in header, then after receiving full message packs it and sends to application for handling.Problem I'm facing is that at random moments in signal I receive errors that "Resource temporarily unavailable" while reading from ttyOx device and I see that sometimes I miss incoming data.Also is it possible that if while I'm handling signal one more signal arrives and it is started to be handled parallel? If it is, what are the ways to prevent it? So I would be sure that no more signals will fire on same peripheral until I will finish handling what I have on my hands now.

Serial open and init:
Code: Select allint open_port(int port_nr) {
    int fd; /* File descriptor for the port */
    switch (port_nr) {
    case 1:
        fd = open("/dev/ttyO1", O_RDWR | O_NOCTTY | O_NDELAY);

Programming :: Why Does A Child Exit When The Parent Receives A Signal

Mar 16, 2011

I have a problem with the last point of some homework I have for an OS class. I need the program to print the pid upon execution, then for 10 seconds react to SIGUSR1, SIGUSR2 and SIGTERM. If either USR1 or USR2 is received, the 10 seconds are reset. Some of the functions I'm told to use are alarm(), pause() and signal(). The nicest way I found was to handle SIGUSR1, SIGUSR2 and SIGALRM in the parent process, with SIGALRM killing the child (with a SIGTERM). In the child a pause() (or for(; pause() would be enough for it to be alive until killed from the SIGALRM handler in the parent.

What I found is that I can't just do a wait() in the parent process, waiting for the child to be killed, since whenever the parent receives a SIGUSR1 or SIGUSR2, the right handler is called but the child exits nicely. I tried blocking/ignoring those signals in the child, since the default behaviour for SIGUSR1 and SIGUSR2 is to terminate the process, but the result is the same. The only way I could do it is using a waitpid() within a do { } while(!WIFSIGNALED(status)) since when the child gets killed with the parent's kill(), it's WIFSIGNALED, whereas when it exits after the parent handles a SIGUSR1/2, it's WIFEXITED.

P.S. What I'm doing to achieve the expected 10s window is calling alarm(10) in the parent process and again within the SIGUSR1/2 handlers. In the SIGALRM handler I kill the child and within the child I simply do a for(; pause()

- catch a string (a link patch) from the line- go to another page of the website from the result of the previous step- repeat all this until there is no match for step 3I know how to :- have the web-page source code using curl (simple, we just have to make "curl- download the picture (as simple as the first step)- have a line in the source code (grep is made for that, isn't it ?)- go to another website from the result of the previous step (it's the same as the first step)But I really don't know how I can do the fourth step of my script.

In facts, I don't know regular expressions and even the shell command that can help me to do this.To be more clear, I would like to store in a variable the string represented by the star (*) in this : <a href="*">Next ></a>

Programming :: Creates A Child Process With Fork And, When The Child Ends, Receives The SIGCHLD Signal And Wait For Its Termination?

May 23, 2011

I have a doubt about signals in C programming. I have done this little program to explain it. It creates a child process with fork and, when the child ends, receives the SIGCHLD signal and wait for its termination.Ok, quite easy, BUT when I execute this code the SIGCHLD signal is received twice, first as an error (returns -1) and the second one to finish the child process.I don't understand the meaning of the first received signal. Why is it generated? Is the code wrong? (if you add the SIGINT and press Ctrl+C during the execution it also receives two signals instead of one)

Code: #include <stdio.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <string.h>

Programming :: Signal From Kernel Space To User Space?

Jul 21, 2011

I have the following requirement in my module. The driver gets some data from the external device. After getting 1MB of data it has to send it to the user space application. What is the best thing to implement for this in driver.? Is it ok to implement like, after getting data, the driver will send a signal to the user space application. Then the user space application sends an ioctl to read the data. Is there any alternate, that the driver directly sends the data without the user space application asks for it.?
