STTY(3) BSD Programmer's Manual STTY(3)
stty, gtty - set and get terminal state (defunct)
#include <sgtty.h> stty(int fd, struct sgttyb *buf); gtty(int fd, struct sgttyb *buf);
These interfaces are obsoleted by ioctl(2). They are available from the compatibility library, libcompat. The stty() function sets the state of the terminal associated with fd. The gtty() function retrieves the state of the terminal associated with fd. To set the state of a terminal the call must have write permission. The stty() call is actually 'ioctl(fd, TIOCSETP, buf)', while the gtty() call is 'ioctl(fd, TIOCGETP, buf)'. See ioctl(2) and tty(4) for an expla- nation.
If the call is successful 0 is returned, otherwise -1 is returned and the global variable errno contains the reason for the failure.
The previous reincarnation of the stty() function was in Version 2 AT&T UNIX. The stty() and gtty() functions then appeared in 4.2BSD. MirOS BSD #10-current June 4, 1993 1
