Hi all:
	I've got some old code that uses sigmask, etc. Can anyone help
me in getting it converted to using the newer sigaction stuff? Signals
remain one of those things that I've use *very* infrequently and I still
don't have it sorted in my head yet.

	Here's the relevant code:

  *fd = socket (AF_INET, SOCK_STREAM, 0);
  for (i = 0; i < MAX_RETRYS; i++)
   { int mask = sigmask(SIGALRM);

     mask = sigblock(mask);
     rc = connect(*fd, &name, sizeof (name));

    if (rc == 0)
    else if (errno == EINTR)
    else break;

	Any assistance will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

If things get any worse, I'll have to ask you to stop helping me.
