Thanks, all. I've made up my first loadable bash builtin and it's running

Another problem:

There's a select() system call in my builtin which looks like this:

rc = select(0, &fds, NULL, NULL, &tmout);
if (rc < 0 && EINTR == errno) {
    return 9;

When select() was waiting there, I pressed CTRL-C to break it. Then I
expected the bash var $? to be 130 (= 128 + SIGINT) but actually $? was 137
(= 128 + 9). So how can I fix it to make $? be 130 when interrupted by
