The Lounge What is on Your Mind? Should we use CODE Tags for terminal input and output? Post 302909670 by Don Cragun on Friday 18th of July 2014 06:59:26 AM
In addition to what has already been said, CODE tags use a fixed width font. So text like:
iiiiiiiiii
WWWWWWWWWW
which looks like very different line lengths without CODE tags, clearly show that they contain the same number of characters when that same text is displayed using CODE tags:
Code:
iiiiiiiiii
WWWWWWWWWW

And, if your code or data contains tab characters, those tabs are preserved if you copy and paste text from regions of a post that are tagged by CODE or ICODE tags, but copy as spaces when not tagged.

So, yes: always use code tags for full line sample code, input, and output; and use icode tags for partial line, imbedded sample code, input, and output!

NAME
cfgetospeed(), cfsetospeed(), cfgetispeed(), cfsetispeed() - tty baud rate functions SYNOPSIS
DESCRIPTION
These functions set and get the input and output speed codes in the termios structure referenced by termios_p. The termios structure con- tains these speed codes representing input and output baud rates as well as other terminal related parameters. Setting the parameters on a terminal file does not become effective until is successfully called. returns the output speed code from the termios structure referenced by termios_p. sets the output speed code in the termios structure referenced by termios_p to speed. The speed code for a baud rate of zero, is used to termi- nate the connection. If is specified, the modem control lines are no longer asserted, which normally discon- nects the line. returns the input speed code from the termios structure referenced by termios_p. sets the input speed code in the termios structure referenced by termios_p to speed. RETURN VALUE
returns the output speed code from the termios structure referenced by termios_p. returns the input speed code from the termios structure referenced by termios_p. and return zero upon successful completion. Otherwise, they return -1 and set to indicate the error. ERRORS
and fail when the following condition is encountered: [EINVAL] The value of speed is outside the range of possible speed codes as specified in WARNINGS
and can be used to set speed codes in the termios structure that are not supported by the terminal hardware. SEE ALSO
