Controlling Tty For A Process

I have developed a Code to find out number and name of processes currently running in SunOS Release 5.8 Server. I have used 'prpsinfo' structure to retrieve process details. But however I am unable to decompose the controlling terminal for the processes. The member variable pr_lttydev holds controlling tty device number. It prints a seven digit numeric value like 6291465. I am unable to figure out the corresponding terminal name for it. Can anyone provide me a solution for it.

Thanks in advance.

I don't know for sure, but I'll take a guess...

Feed the value that you are getting into the macros major() and minor() which are defined in sys/sysmacros.h to get the major and minor number of the device. Then search /dev for a character device with the same major and minor numbers.
