"Signals", in accordance with a POSIX standard, that can be sent to programs to perform specific actions. The most familiar is probably SIGHUP. Hmm, are these more relevant to a client /wever environment than a more "ordinary" program?




  • SIGHUP — typical action is to reset a program / server, closing all client connections and performing other cleanup duties
  • SIGTERM — typical action is to terminate a program / server

I'm sure there are others — I have no need to look for them, ATM.
