SIGALRM available?

Discussion in 'Ruby' started by Guillaume Marcais, Feb 14, 2005.

  1. Is SIGALRM (on Linux) available for a Ruby app to redefine, or is it
    used internally by Ruby (or some very often used libraries)?

    Guillaume.

    You can use SIGALRM. SIGVTALRM is reserved for threads.
