Summary 0001159: Is termination after receipt of SIGINT in dd(1) an error?
Description When dd(1) receives SIGINT it shall "interrupt its current processing, write status information to standard error, and exit as though terminated by SIGINT."

Does "exit as though terminated by SIGINT" imply effecting the default behavior as described in ยง2.4.3, i.e. restoring the default behavior for SIGINT and resignaling itself? Or will any nonzero status code suffice? Or is it not an error case at all, i.e. it should provide status 0 upon exit?
Desired Action Clarify whether receipt of SIGINT in dd(1) is an error, and if so whether or not it should exit with the same status it would under the default signal handler.
Tags No tags attached.
