That type of information is usually available in the man pages.

    "If a read() is interrupted by a signal before it  reads  any
     data, it will return -1 with errno set to EINTR.

     If a read() is interrupted by a signal after it has success-
     fully  read  some  data,  it will return the number of bytes
