      # background job in interactive shell
      $ python -c "import signal; print(signal.getsignal(signal.SIGINT))" &
      <built-in function default_int_handler>
        
      # invocation in non interactive shell
      $ sh -c 'python -c "import signal; print(signal.getsignal(signal.SIGINT))"'
      <built-in function default_int_handler>
        
      # background job in non-interactive shell
      $ sh -c 'python -c "import signal; print(signal.getsignal(signal.SIGINT))" &'
