Lclearfault — clear process
and thread faults
Process Control Library (libproc, -lproc)
During normal operation a process may encounter a fault, due to a hardware exception, identifying a problem with the running process. Hardware faults include things like executing illegal instructions, encountering a breakpoint, and arithmetic exceptions. Faults are discussed further in proc(5).
function instructs the system to clear any fault pending delivery to a
thread in the process represented by the process handle
P. The pending fault will never be delivered to
process represented by P.
function is identical to the
except rather than operating on the representative thread of the process it
operates on the thread handle L.
Lclearfault() functions only have meaning for
active processes. They will fail on process handles corresponding to zombie
processes, ELF objects, and cores.
