Interpretation Request #10
Topic: Defect in XBD Relevant Sections: struct sigaction
The notation used for the members of struct sigaction is inconsistent. void (*sa_handler)(int) and void (*)(int, siginfo_t *, void *) sa_sigaction
Change line 10814 to void (*sa_sigaction)(int, siginfo_t *, void *)
The standard is unclear on this issue, and no conformance distinction can be made between alternative implementations based on this. This is being referred to the sponsor.
