stty, gtty -- set and get terminal state (defunct) LIBRARY
Compatibility Library (libcompat, -lcompat) SYNOPSIS
#include <sgtty.h> stty(int fd, struct sgttyb *buf); gtty(int fd, struct sgttyb *buf); DESCRIPTION
These interfaces are obsoleted by ioctl(2). They are available from the compatibility library, libcompat. The stty() function sets the state of the terminal associated with fd. The gtty() function retrieves the state of the terminal associated with fd. To set the state of a terminal the call must have write permission. The stty() call is actually 'ioctl(fd, TIOCSETP, buf)', while the gtty() call is 'ioctl(fd, TIOCGETP, buf)'. See ioctl(2) and tty(4) for an explanation. DIAGNOSTICS
If the call is successful 0 is returned, otherwise -1 is returned and the global variable errno contains the reason for the failure. SEE ALSO
ioctl(2), tty(4) HISTORY
The stty() and gtty() functions appeared in 4.2BSD. BSD
June 4, 1993 BSD

sttyv6: stty - terminal interface for Version 6/PWB compatibility DESCRIPTION
These routines attempt to map the UNIX Time-Sharing System, Sixth Edition (Version 6), and PWB stty and gtty calls into the current ioctls that perform the same functions. The mapping cannot be perfect. The way the features are translated is described below. The reader should be familiar with before studying this entry. The following data structure is defined in the include file struct sgttyb { char sg_ispeed; /* input speed */ char sg_ospeed; /* output speed */ char sg_erase; /* erase character */ char sg_kill; /* kill character */ int sg_flags; /* mode flags */ } The flags, as defined in sgtty.h, are: define HUPCL define XTABS define LCASE define ECHO define CRMOD define RAW define ODDP define EVENP define ANYP define NLDELAY define TBDELAY define CRDELAY define VTDELAY define BSDELAY define CR0 define CR1 define CR2 define CR3 define NL0 define NL1 define NL2 define NL3 define TAB0 define TAB1 define NOAL define FF0 define FF1 define BS0 define BS1 When the command (ioctl is executed, the flags in the old structure are mapped into their new equivalents in the structure. Then the com- mand is executed. The following table shows the mapping between the old flags and the current flags. Note that flags contained in the structure that are not mentioned below are cleared. HUPCL (if set) sets the termio HUPCL flag; HUPCL (if clear) clears the termio HUPCL flag; XTABS (if set) sets the termio TAB3 flag; XTABS (if clear) clears the termio TAB3 flag; TBDELAY (if set) sets the termio TAB1 flag; TBDELAY (if clear) clears the termio TAB1 flag; LCASE (if set) sets the termio IUCLC, OLCUC, and XCASE flags; LCASE (if clear) clears the termio IUCLC, OLCUC, and XCASE flags; ECHO (if set) sets the termio ECHO flag; ECHO (if clear) clears the termio ECHO flag; NOAL (if set) sets the termio ECHOK flag; NOAL (if clear) clears the termio ECHOK flag; CRMOD (if set) sets the termio ICRNL and ONLCR flags; also, if CR1 is set, the termio CR1 flag is set, and if CR2 is set, the termio ONOCR and CR2 flags are set; CRMOD (if clear) sets the termio ONLRET flag; also, if NL1 is set, the termio CR1 flag is set, and if NL2 is set, the termio CR2 flag is set; RAW (if set) sets the termio CS8 flag, and clears the termio ICRNL and IUCLC flags; also, default values of 6 characters and 0.1 seconds are assigned to MIN and TIME, respectively; RAW (if clear) sets the termio BRKINT, IGNPAR, ISTRIP, IXON, IXANY, OPOST, CS7, PARENB, ICANON, and ISIG flags; also, the default values control-D and null are assigned to the control characters EOF and EOL, respectively; ODDP (if set) if EVENP is also set, clears the termio INPCK flag; otherwise, sets the termio PARODD flag; VTDELAY (if set) sets the termio FFDLY flag; VTDELAY (if clear) clears the termio FFDLY flag; BSDELAY (if set) sets the termio BSDLY flag; BSDELAY (if clear) clears the termio BSDLY flag. In addition, the CREAD bit is set, and, if the baud rate is 110, the CSTOPB bit is set. When using the ispeed entry in the structure is mapped into the appropriate speed in the CBAUD field. The erase and kill entries are mapped into the erase and kill characters. When the (ioctl command is executed, the command is first executed. The resulting structure is then mapped into the structure, which is then returned to the user. The following table shows how the flags are mapped into the old structure. Note that all flags contained in the structure that are not mentioned below are cleared. HUPCL (if set) sets the sgttyb HUPCL flag; HUPCL (if clear) clears the sgttyb HUPCL flag; ICANON (if set) sets the sgttyb RAW flag; ICANON (if clear) clears the sgttyb RAW flag; XCASE (if set) sets the sgttyb LCASE flag; XCASE (if clear) clears the sgttyb LCASE flag; ECHO (if set) sets the sgttyb ECHO flag; ECHO (if clear) clears the sgttyb ECHO flag; ECHOK (if set) sets the sgttyb NOAL flag; ECHOK (if clear) clears the sgttyb NOAL flag; PARODD (if set) sets the sgttyb ODDP flag; PARODD (if clear) clears the sgttyb ODDP flag; INPCK (if set) sets the sgttyb EVENP flag; PARODD, INPCK (if both clear) sets the sgttyb ODDP and EVENP flags; ONLCR (if set) sets the sgttyb CRMOD flag; also, if CR1 is set, the sgttyb CR1 flag is set, and if CR2 is set, the sgttyb CR2 flag is set; ONLCR (if clear) if CR1 is set, the sgttyb NL1 flag is set, and if CR2 is set, the sgttyb NL2 flag is set; TAB3 (if set) sets the sgttyb XTABS flag; TAB3 (if clear) clears the sgttyb XTABS flag; TAB1 (if set) sets the sgttyb TBDELAY flag; TAB1 (if clear) clears the sgttyb TBDELAY flag; FFDLY (if set) sets the sgttyb VTDELAY flag; FFDLY (if clear) clears the sgttyb VTDELAY flag; BSDLY (if set) sets the sgttyb BSDELAY flag; BSDLY (if clear) clears the sgttyb BSDELAY flag. When using the CBAUD field is mapped into the ispeed and ospeed entries of the structure. Also, the erase and kill characters are mapped into the erase and kill entries. Note that, since there is not a one-to-one mapping between the and structures, unexpected results may occur when using the older and calls. Thus, the and calls should be replaced in all future code by the current equivalents, and respectively. WARNINGS
These facilities are included to aid in conversion of old programs, and should not be used in new code. Use the interface described in Note that these conversions do work for programs ported from UNIX Time-Sharing System, Seventh Edition (Version 7), because some V7 flags are defined differently.
