- Subject: Accessing signal context from a handler
Does Cygwin allow accessing the context (register state, etc) of the
faulted instruction from a signal handler installed by sigaction(),
similar to ucontext/mcontext in Linux? Accessing the Windows CONTEXT
object should do. I've looked through winsup/cygwin/exceptions.cc, and
that info doesn't seem to be saved anywhere for later access, nor is it
passed into the handler.
If accessing the context is not currently possible, are there plans for
implementing this functionality? Thanks,

It took the computational power of three Commodore 64s to fly to the moon.
It takes a 486 to run Windows 95. Something is wrong here. -- SC sig file
