A library for handling page faults in user mode (development files)

libsigsegv_devel - 2.13-1 - x86_64

GNU libsigsegv is a library for handling page faults in user mode. A page fault occurs when a program tries to access to a region of memory that is currently not available. Catching and handling a page fault is a useful technique for implementing:
* Pageable virtual memory
* Memory-mapped access to persistent databases
* Generational garbage collectors
* Stack overflow handlers
* Distributed shared memory
This library supports three sets of functions, all defined in <sigsegv.h>:
* Global SIGSEGV handlers
* Local SIGSEGV handlers (a handler per memory area)
* Stack overflow handlers
