STTY(3) 			   BSD Library Functions Manual 			  STTY(3)

NAME
     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.
