Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1019334
ksh monitor mode documented contrary to what it actually does
Last modified: 2014-11-05 05:15:53 EST
Description of problem:
ksh -m test.ksh -> xterms survive the script
ksh test.ksh -> xterms die with the script
However, the man page says contrary: "The INT and QUIT signals for an invoked command are ignored if the command is followed by & and the monitor option is not active."
This seems to be documentation bug as:
1) the ksh monitor mode behavior has been discussed with David Korn
2) bash man page says: "...keyboard-generated signals such as SIGINT... Background processes are those whose process group ID differs from the terminal’s; such processes are immune to keyboard-generated signals." which is the same as the fixed ksh do.
