Signal blocking under Linux & OS X

Project Description

Provides access to sigprocmask(2) and friends and convenience wrappers to python application developers wanting to SIG_BLOCK and SIG_UNBLOCK signals in critical sections of their code.

Most common usage

from signal import SIGINT, SIGTERM
from pysigset import suspended_signals

with suspended_signals(SIGINT, SIGTERM):
    # Signals are blocked here..
    pass
# Any pending signal is fired now..

Also available

    int sigaddset(sigset_t *set, int signum)

python-signalfd provides access to sigprocmask and signalfd. Its advantage is access to signalfd. Its disadvantage is a compilation requirement.

pysigset has a pythonic interface and requires only ctypes access to libc.so.6 or libSystem.B.dylib.
