LibHTTP API Reference – httplib_kill()

httplib_kill( pid, sig );


Parameter Type Description
pid pid_t The process identifier of the process
sig int The signal to be sent to the process

Return Value

Type Description
int An integer which indicates success or failure


The function httplib_kill() provides a platform independent way to send a signal to a process. The function uses the Postfix kill() functions in environments where that function is supported or emulates that function with own code for other operating systems. The function call returns 0 if sending the signal was successful and -1 otherwise.

Please note that for non Posix-compliant systems the functionality of the Posix kill() function has not been fully implemented. Currently only the SIGKILL has been implemented and tested fully. For other signals the functionality is unknown and may not lead to the desired results.
