 +===== Discussion =====
 +
 +Instead of updating ''pcntl_signal'', it was suggested to add a method ''pcntl_sigaction'', which would "keep maximum compatibility and eliminate unnecessary additional overhead". This suggestion was later withdrawn as perhaps adding more complication than the patch itself, though a later [[https://github.com/php/php-src/pull/1985|PR]] addressed parts of the suggestion. [[https://www.mail-archive.com/internals@lists.php.net/msg86504.html|Reference.]]
 +
 +Performance was raised as a concern. Having run tests through callgrind there is an additional 0.0001% cost for the feature. The profiled code defined an empty function, set the handler, and triggered the signal. Passing the additional information resulted in 2000 extra instructions, out of a total 13 million. This seems negligible compared to the cost of acquiring the same information through other means (eg message queues, temporary files, etc.).
