Final Accepted Text
Summary 0001474: strsignal() NAME section is misleading
Description The NAME section on the strsignal() page says "get name of signal".

This is misleading, as what is returned is not what most readers would think of as the "name" of a signal (which is what the new sig2str() function in Issue 8 draft 2 returns). It should be changed to be consistent with sterror(), which has "get error message string". The use of "message" would also match the text in the strsignal() description that says it uses "the same set of messages as the psignal() function."
Desired Action Change:
get name of signal
to:
get signal message string
