TCSETPGRP(3)						   BSD Library Functions Manual 					      TCSETPGRP(3)

NAME
tcsetpgrp -- set foreground process group ID LIBRARY
Standard C Library (libc, -lc) SYNOPSIS
#include <unistd.h> int tcsetpgrp(int fd, pid_t pgrp_id); DESCRIPTION
If the process has a controlling terminal, the tcsetpgrp function sets the foreground process group ID associated with the terminal device to pgrp_id. The terminal device associated with fd must be the controlling terminal of the calling process and the controlling terminal must be currently associated with the session of the calling process. The value of pgrp_id must be the same as the process group ID of a process in the same session as the calling process. Upon successful completion, tcsetpgrp returns a value of zero. ERRORS
If an error occurs, tcgetpgrp returns -1 and the global variable errno is set to indicate the error, as follows: [EBADF] The fd argument is not a valid file descriptor. [EINVAL] An invalid value of pgrp_id was specified. [ENOTTY] The calling process does not have a controlling terminal, or the file represented by fd is not the controlling terminal, or the controlling terminal is no longer associated with the session of the calling process. [EPERM] The pgrp_id argument does not match the process group ID of a process in the same session as the calling process. SEE ALSO
setpgid(2), setsid(2), tcgetpgrp(3) STANDARDS
The tcsetpgprp function conforms to ISO/IEC 9945-1:1990 (``POSIX.1''). BSD
