NAME
       tcsetpgrp - set the foreground process group ID

SYNOPSIS
       #include <unistd.h>

       int tcsetpgrp(int fildes, pid_t pgid_id);

DESCRIPTION
       If  the	process  has a controlling terminal, tcsetpgrp() shall set the foreground process
       group ID associated with the terminal to pgid_id. The application shall	ensure	that  the
       file  associated  with  fildes  is the controlling terminal of the calling process and the
       controlling terminal is currently associated with the session of the calling process.  The
       application shall ensure that the value of pgid_id matches a process group ID of a process
       in the same session as the calling process.

       Attempts to use tcsetpgrp() from a process which is a member of a background process group
       on  a  fildes associated with its controlling terminal shall cause the process group to be
       sent a SIGTTOU signal. If the calling process is blocking or ignoring SIGTTOU signals, the
       process shall be allowed to perform the operation, and no signal is sent.

RETURN VALUE
       Upon successful completion, 0 shall be returned. Otherwise, -1 shall be returned and errno
       set to indicate the error.

ERRORS
       The tcsetpgrp() function shall fail if:

       EBADF  The fildes argument is not a valid file descriptor.

       EINVAL This implementation does not support the value in the pgid_id argument.

       ENOTTY The calling process does not have a controlling terminal, or the file  is  not  the
	      controlling  terminal, or the controlling terminal is no longer associated with the
	      session of the calling process.

       EPERM  The value of pgid_id is a value supported by the implementation, but does not match
	      the process group ID of a process in the same session as the calling process.
