SignalException

Raised when a signal is received.

begin
  Process.kill('HUP',Process.pid)
  sleep # wait for receiver to handle signal sent by Process.kill
rescue SignalException => e
  puts "received Exception #{e}"
end

produces:

received Exception SIGHUP

Public Class Methods

new(sig_name) → signal_exception click to toggle source
new(sig_number [, name]) → signal_exception

Construct a new SignalException object. sig_name should be a known signal name.
