v6 v7 37 37 * [[GhcFile(rts/win32/Ticker.c)]] 38 38 39 On Posix, the timer signal is implemented by calling ` setitimer()` to generate regular `SIGALRM` signals (the single threaded RTS uses SIGVTALRM). This isn't ideal, since we'd like to allow the application t so use `SIGALRM` if it needs to. Ideally we should use something better (see#850). 39 On Posix, the timer signal is implemented by calling ` #850). 40 40 41 41 On Windows, we spawn a new thread that repeatedly sleeps for the timer interval and then executes the timer interrupt handler.
