      Description

      Catching control-C and possibly other signals is one way for applications to handle user-interrupted action.

      There is currently no supported API to intercept and handle any signal. sun.misc.Signal and sun.misc.SignalHandler are internal API that some existing application depends on.

      Need to look into a possible replacement for sun.misc.Signal and SignalHandler API.
