|tid||Integer task identifier of PVM process to receive the signal.|
|signum||Integer signal number.|
Integer status code returned by the routine.
The routine pvm_sendsig sends the signal number signum to the PVM process identified by tid. If pvm_sendsig is successful, info will be 0. If some error occurs then info will be < 0.
pvm_sendsig should only be used by programmers with Unix signal handling experience. Many library functions (and in fact the PVM library functions) cannot be called in a signal handler context because they do not mask signals or lock internal data structures.
Further caveat: the signal numbers passed between systems are not mapped - PVM assumes that signal 9 on one system is the same as on another.
C: tid = pvm_parent(); info = pvm_sendsig( tid, SIGKILL);
Fortran: CALL PVMFBUFINFO( BUFID, BYTES, TYPE, TID, INFO ); CALL PVMFSENDSIG( TID, SIGNUM, INFO )
These error conditions can be returned by pvm_sendsig
PvmSysErr pvmd not responding. PvmBadParam giving an invalid tid value.
