       psignal - General: Sends a signal to a process

       void psignal(
	       struct proc *process,
	       int signal );

       Specifies a pointer to a proc structure.	 Specifies the signal that you
       want to send to the specified process. You can specify any of the  sig‐
       nals defined in /usr/sys/include/sys/signal.h.

       The  psignal routine posts a signal to the specified process. The post‐
       ing of a signal causes that signal to be added to the  set  of  pending
       signals	for  the  specified  process.  Depending  on  the state of the
       process and the state of the process's signals,	the  specified	signal
       may  be	ignored,  masked, caught by a tracing parent, or caught by the
       actual target process. If the signal is to be delivered to  the	target
       process, psignal examines and modifies the process state to prepare the
       execution of the appropriate signal handler.
