NAME

stty, gtty - Set and get terminal state  

SYNOPSIS

#include <sgtty.h>

stty (
    int fd,
    struct sgttyb *buf );

gtty (
    int fd,
    struct sgttyb *buf );  

DESCRIPTION

The stty subroutine sets the state of the terminal associated with fd. The gtty subroutine retrieves the state of the terminal associated with fd. To set the state of a terminal, the stty call must have write permission.

Calls to these subroutines, supported only to ensure BSD binary compatibility, have been superseded by the ioctl system call. The stty call is implemented as ioctl(fd, TIOCSETP, buf), while the gtty call is implemented as ioctl(fd, TIOCGETP, buf). See ioctl(2) and tty(7) for more information.  

RETURN VALUES

If the call is successful, zero is returned; otherwise, -1 is returned and the global variable errno indicates the reason for the failure.
