STTY(3) Library Routines STTY(3)
stty, gtty - set and get terminal state (defunct)
int stty (int fd, struct sgttyb *buf);
int gtty (int fd, struct sgttyb *buf);
These interfaces are obsoleted by ioctl(2) and should be avoided.
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 permis-
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.
If the call is successful 0 is returned, otherwise -1 is returned and
the global variable errno contains the reason for the failure.
The stty and gtty functions appeared in 4.2BSD.
