Sorry but I don't understand your remark. What is your problem with retrying syscall on EINTR? Can you please elaborate? What do you mean by "get wrong"?
Le dimanche 31 août 2014, Marko Rauhamaa firstname.lastname@example.org a écrit :
If a system call fails with ``EINTR``, Python must call signal handlers: call ``PyErr_CheckSignals()``. If a signal handler raises an exception, the Python function fails with the exception. Otherwise, the system call is retried. If the system call takes a timeout parameter, the timeout is recomputed.
Signals are tricky and easy to get wrong, to be sure, but I think it is dangerous for Python to unconditionally commandeer signal handling. If the proposition is accepted, there should be a way to opt out.
