Killing an exec'ed process
Posted on 2000-03-14
I have installed a signal handler using sigaction to catch SIGTERM. However the main process vforks, and then execs a new process in the resulting child process.
Is there any way to kill that process which has been exec'ed ? From all the man pages, I know that the exec set of calls resets any signal's dispositions to their default handlers.
Any pointers ?
