We use the system service to translate the code if the system provides
it (many UNIX systems provide strsignal() for example).  If not we have
a predefined set of signals we translate, but if the signal is not a
member of that predefined list it's not translated.

ok, I wonder if win32 has extra signals, this code 127, could these be supported for win32 ports?

Because the POSIX standard defines the exit code of an application to be
an 8-bit value, not a signed integer.

It is odd that "int main(void)" is commonly used then, as int is typically a signed type.

Kind regards
