getpgrp - get the process group ID of the calling process SYNOPSIS
#include <unistd.h> pid_t getpgrp(void); DESCRIPTION
The getpgrp() function shall return the process group ID of the calling process. RETURN VALUE
The getpgrp() function shall always be successful and no return value is reserved to indicate an error. ERRORS
No errors are defined. The following sections are informative. EXAMPLES
None. APPLICATION USAGE
None. RATIONALE
4.3 BSD provides a getpgrp() function that returns the process group ID for a specified process. Although this function supports job con- trol, all known job control shells always specify the calling process with this function. Thus, the simpler System V getpgrp() suffices, and the added complexity of the 4.3 BSD getpgrp() is provided by the XSI extension getpgid(). FUTURE DIRECTIONS
None. SEE ALSO
