I assume you meant signal(3), not select(3); preferring sigaction to
select is a bit like preferring sqrt to strlen. That said:
My understanding is probably incomplete, but I'd say that this is only
partially true. sigaction() is the more general of the two - it offers
facilities signal() doesn't - but, where the capabilities of signal()
are sufficient to the task, I see no reason to avoid it.
