STTY(3) BSD Library Functions Manual STTY(3)
stty, gtty -- set and get terminal state (defunct)
Compatibility Library (libcompat, -lcompat)
stty(int fd, struct sgttyb *buf);
gtty(int fd, struct sgttyb *buf);
These interfaces are obsoleted by ioctl(2). They are available from the compatibility
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.
If the call is successful 0 is returned, otherwise -1 is returned and the global variable
errno contains the reason for the failure.
The stty() and gtty() functions appeared in 4.2BSD.
