Hi Friends -

Is there any way to tell if a C library function installs its own signal

C89 section 4.7.1:

The implementation shall behave as if no library function calls
the signal function.

Thus, if a C library function does install its own signal
handler, then it would have to do so in a manner that is
transparent to any of the C standard routines that could possibly
detect that signal handler. Therefore, if there is a way of
detecting such a thing, it would have to lie outside of the C
standard (e.g., an OS routine.)
