NAME
tcdrain - wait for transmission of output
SYNOPSIS
#include <termios.h> int tcdrain(int fildes);
DESCRIPTION
The tcdrain() function waits until all output written to the object referred to by fildes is transmitted. The fildes argument is an open file descriptor associated with a terminal. Any attempts to use tcdrain() from a process which is a member of a background process group on a fildes associated with its controlling terminal, will cause the process group to be sent a SIGTTOU signal. If the calling process is blocking or ignoring SIGTTOU signals, the process is allowed to perform the operation, and no signal is sent.
RETURN VALUES
Upon successful completion, 0 is returned. Otherwise, -1 is returned and errno is set to indicate the error.
ERRORS
The tcdrain() function will fail if: EBADF The fildes argument is not a valid file descriptor. EINTR A signal interrupted tcdrain(). ENOTTY The file associated with fildes is not a terminal. The tcdrain() function may fail if: EIO The process group of the writing process is orphaned, and the writing process is not ignoring or blocking SIGTTOU.
