1.2.13.1 Intercepting Signals (handle)

handle signal keywords...
Change the way the debugger handles signal signal. signal can be the number of a signal or its name (with or without the SIG at the beginning); The keywords say what change to make.

The keywords allowed by the handle command can be abbreviated. Their full names are:

stop
The debugger should stop your program when this signal happens. This implies the print keyword as well.

nostop
The debugger should not stop your program when this signal happens. It may still print a message telling you that the signal has come in.

print
The debugger should print a message when this signal happens.

noprint
The debugger should not mention the occurrence of the signal at all.

pass
The debugger should allow your program to see this signal; your program can handle the signal, or else it may terminate if the signal is fatal and not handled. pass and noignore are synonyms.

nopass
The debugger should not allow your program to see this signal. nopass and ignore are synonyms.

stack

The debugger should print a stack trace when it receives the signal. When used with ``nostop'', this can be useful if you've got a program that seems ``hung'' and you want to find out where it is, but continue after showing this information.

nostack
The debugger should not print a stack trace when it receives the signal.
