Linux 2.6 - man page for getpgid (linux section 3posix)

GETPGID(P)			    POSIX Programmer's Manual			       GETPGID(P)

NAME
       getpgid - get the process group ID for a process

SYNOPSIS
       #include <unistd.h>

       pid_t getpgid(pid_t pid);

DESCRIPTION
       The  getpgid()  function shall return the process group ID of the process whose process ID
       is equal to pid. If pid is equal to 0, getpgid() shall return the process group ID of  the
       calling process.

RETURN VALUE
       Upon successful completion, getpgid() shall return a process group ID. Otherwise, it shall
       return (pid_t)-1 and set errno to indicate the error.

ERRORS
       The getpgid() function shall fail if:

       EPERM  The process whose process ID is equal to pid is not in  the  same  session  as  the
	      calling  process, and the implementation does not allow access to the process group
	      ID of that process from the calling process.

       ESRCH  There is no process with a process ID equal to pid.

       The getpgid() function may fail if:

       EINVAL The value of the pid argument is invalid.
