Why no POSIX Signal Handling, Qt?

After using Qt to facilite nearly all of my C++ project needs, one has to notice why on EARTH doesn’t it have any means of handling POSIX signals as easy as you handle signals with any other QObject? If anything, it should be considered something of equal importance in QCoreApplication.

After using Qt to facilite nearly all of my C++ project needs, one has to notice why on EARTH doesn’t it have any means of handling POSIX signals as easy as you handle signals with any other QObject? If anything, it should be considered something of equal importance in QCoreApplication.

In my own personal venture to fix this, I’ve begun working on such a little lightweight library (might just move it into a header, to be honest) on GitHub called [QtPosixSignal][2]. The [README.md][3] took me some time to think up but it contains the implementation and flow I’d like it to have. I’m open to suggestions on how to go about via issues to keep the developmental flow of things open.

To better signal handling in Qt applications!
