Not being familiar with the sigaction function, how would I use it in an

I agree w/Chris.

Though, you can monitor for a shutdown using sigaction() as well, and I
like that better, because the program will respond to a *CNTRLD end

But, I agree.. if you're coding a server/daemon/service/nep (all
different words for the same thing) you really need to check for shutdown.

IMHO if you write a Sever or Never Ending Program, you should have
the shutdown coded or be shot.
