SENDSIG(3PVM) PVM Version 3.4 SENDSIG(3PVM)

pvm_sendsig - Sends a signal to another PVM process.

C	int info = pvm_sendsig( int tid, int signum )
 
Fortran call pvmfsendsig( tid, signum, info )

tid
Integer task identifier of PVM process to receive the signal.
 
signum
Integer signal number.
 
info
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.
