handler should be defined to take an
&rest argument, and ignore it. There are no restrictions on handler other than those applying to any asynchronous function call, and that it may be called in any thread. In particular there is no need to handle the signal immediately.
The currently defined signal handlers are shown in the output of the bug report template which can generated via the
:bug-form listener command. For example, there is a
SIGINT handler which calls
break. You should consult Lisp Support before overwriting existing signal handlers.
LispWorks initially has no
SIGHUP will kill a LispWorks process which does not have a
SIGHUP handler installed. When the LispWorks IDE starts up, a
SIGHUP handler (which attempts to release locks in the environment) is installed. However if you need a
SIGHUP handler in a server application, for example, you should install one using
(sys:set-signal-handler 1 'my-hup-handler)
