Thanks Tage,

I think I was not very clean in asking my question. What I am looking for
is, how to find out if a particular UNIX **system call** is implementaed or
not ?. Lets say, if signal() is implemaneted ? if yes, what all signal ? I
could not locate any documant for this information.

thanka for the reply.
