Recently I posted a question on a different newsgroup pertaining to
POSIX timers. I wanted to know how POSIX timers work. In System V,
timers are implemented via an alarm system call, which causes a
SIG_ALM signal to be generated when the time elapses. My question was
whether POSIX timers work the same way, or are they handled
I have been told that POSIX specifies an INTERFACE, not an
IMPLEMENTATION. Hence I revise my question:
How are POSIX timers implemented on Solaris?
