Detailed Description

A source of a type of observable event.

Signals are recognized points where significant events can be observed. Compositors as well as the server can provide signals. Observers are wl_listener's that are added through wl_signal_add. Signals are emitted using wl_signal_emit, which will invoke all listeners until that listener is removed by wl_list_remove() (or whenever the signal is destroyed).
