Write a C program that doesn’t terminate when Ctrl+Z is pressed. It prints a message “Cannot be suspended using Ctrl+Z” and continues execution.
We can use Unix signal for this. When Ctrl+Z is pressed, SIGTSTP signal is generated.
SIGTSTP signal is sent to a process by its controlling terminal to request it to stop (terminal stop). We can catch this signal and run our own defined signal.
The standard C library function signal() can be used to set up a handler for any of the above signals.
