NAME
isatty - test for a terminal device SYNOPSIS
#include <unistd.h> int isatty(int fildes); DESCRIPTION
The isatty() function tests whether fildes, an open file descriptor, is associated with a terminal device. RETURN VALUES
The isatty() function returns 1 if fildes is associated with a terminal; otherwise it returns 0 and may set errno to indicate the error. ERRORS
The isatty() function may fail if: EBADF The fildes argument is not a valid open file descriptor. ENOTTY The fildes argument is not associated with a terminal. USAGE
The isatty() function does not necessarily indicate that a human being is available for interaction via fildes. It is quite possible that non-terminal devices are connected to the communications line. ATTRIBUTES
