NAMEraise - send a signal to the caller
SYNOPSIS#include <signal.h> int raise(int sig);
DESCRIPTIONThe raise() function sends a signal to the calling process or thread. In a single-threaded program it is equivalent to kill(getpid(), sig); In a multithreaded program it is equivalent to pthread_kill(pthread_self(), sig); If the signal causes a handler to be called, raise() will only return after the signal handler has returned.
RETURN VALUEraise() returns 0 on success, and nonzero for failure.
