OpenSolaris 2009.06 - man page for getsid (opensolaris section 2)

getsid(2)				   System Calls 				getsid(2)

NAME
       getsid - get process group ID of session leader

SYNOPSIS
       #include <unistd.h>

       pid_t getsid(pid_t pid);

DESCRIPTION
       The  getsid()  function	obtains  the  process group ID of the process that is the session
       leader of the process specified by pid.	If pid is  (pid_t)0,  it  specifies  the  calling
       process.

RETURN VALUES
       Upon successful completion, getsid() returns the process group ID of the session leader of
       the specified process. Otherwise, it returns (pid_t)-1 and  sets  errno	to  indicate  the
       error.

ERRORS
       The getsid() function will fail if:

       EPERM	The  process  specified by pid is not in the same session as the calling process,
		and the implementation does not allow access to the process group ID of the  ses-
		sion leader of that process from the calling process.

       ESRCH	There is no process with a process ID equal to pid.
