What is an interrupt?


An interrupt is a signal informing a program that an event has occurred. When a program receives an interrupt signal, it takes a specified action (which can be to ignore the signal) . Interrupt signals can cause a program to suspend itself temporarily to service the interrupt. Interrupt signals can come from a variety of sources. Interrupts can also be generated by other devices, such as a printer, to indicate that some event has occurred. These are called hardware interrupts Interrupt signals initiated by programs are called software interrupts. A software interrupt is also called a trap or an exception.
