#ifndef SIGCHAIN_H
#define SIGCHAIN_H
/**
* Code often wants to set a signal handler to clean up temporary files or
* other work-in-progress when we die unexpectedly. For multiple pieces of
* code to do this without conflicting, each piece of code must remember
* the old value of the handler and restore it either when:
*
* 1. The work-in-progress is finished, and the handler is no longer
* necessary. The handler should revert to the original behavior
* (either another handler, SIG_DFL, or SIG_IGN).
*
* 2. The signal is received. We should then do our cleanup, then chain
* to the next handler (or die if it is SIG_DFL).
*
* Sigchain is a tiny library for keeping a stack of handlers. Your handler
* and installation code should look something like:
*
* ------------------------------------------
* void clean_foo_on_signal(int sig)
* {
* clean_foo();
* sigchain_pop(sig);
* raise(sig);
* }
*
* void other_func()
* {
* sigchain_push_common(clean_foo_on_signal);
* mess_up_foo();
* clean_foo();
* }
* ------------------------------------------
*

* Handlers are given the typedef of sigchain_fun. This is the same type
