P_PPID, P_CID - not available; potential enhancement (CrUn19)

SIG Impacts

Problem description

The P_PPID and P_CID flags for the sigsend function exist only on Tru64 UNIX, and not on HP-UX.

The sigsend function sends a signal to a group of processes specified by the id and idtype parameters. If the idtype parameter is set to P_PPID, then the signal is sent to all children of id. If the idtype parameter is set to P_CID, the signal is sent to any process whose scheduling class ID is equal to id. HP-UX actually defines P_CID but does not yet support it.
