Handling EINTR – Interrupted System Call

June 4, 2015

Recently bump into problem on where calling function epoll_wait() return a negative value. Further parsing the errno with function strerror(errno) gives: Interrupted System Call.

A simple digging finding a few suggestion on implementing a while loop with calling epoll_wait() function again. Feeling un-easy about the solution as well as wanted to understand more about the error, I search again and found this wonderful article explaining it EINTR, with an example that is easy to understand.
