/* When Emacs is using signal-driven input, the processing of those
input signals can get pretty hairy. For example, when Emacs is
running under X windows, handling an input signal can entail
retrieving events from the X event queue, or making other X calls.
If an input signal occurs while Emacs is in the midst of some
non-reentrant code, and the signal processing invokes that same
code, we lose. For example, malloc and the Xlib functions aren't
usually re-entrant, and both are used by the X input signal handler
- if we try to process an input signal in the midst of executing
any of these functions, we'll lose.
To avoid this, we make the following requirements:
* Everyone must evaluate BLOCK_INPUT before entering these functions,
and then call UNBLOCK_INPUT after performing them. Calls
BLOCK_INPUT and UNBLOCK_INPUT may be nested.
* Any complicated interrupt handling code should test
interrupt_input_blocked, and put off its work until later.
* If the interrupt handling code wishes, it may set
interrupt_input_pending to a non-zero value. If that flag is set
when input becomes unblocked, UNBLOCK_INPUT will send a new SIGIO. */
extern unsigned int interrupt_input_blocked;
/* Nonzero means an input interrupt has arrived
during the current critical section. */
extern int interrupt_input_pending;
/* Begin critical section. */
#define BLOCK_INPUT (interrupt_input_blocked++)
/* End critical section. */
#ifdef SIGIO
/* If doing interrupt input, and an interrupt came in when input was blocked,
reinvoke the interrupt handler now to deal with it. */
#define UNBLOCK_INPUT \
(interrupt_input_blocked--, \
(interrupt_input_blocked < 0 ? (abort (), 0) : 0), \
((interrupt_input_blocked == 0 && interupt_input_pending != 0) \
? (kill (0, SIGIO), 0) \
: 0))
