STTY(3C)                                                              STTY(3C)



NAME
       stty, gtty - set and get terminal state (defunct)

SYNOPSIS
       #include <&lt;sgtty.h>&gt;

       stty(fd, buf)
       int fd;
       struct sgttyb *buf;

       gtty(fd, buf)
       int fd;
       struct sgttyb *buf;

DESCRIPTION
       This interface is obsoleted by ioctl(2).

       Stty sets the state of the terminal associated with fd.  Gtty retrieves
       the state of the terminal associated with fd.  To set the  state  of  a
       terminal the call must have write permission.

       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.

DIAGNOSTICS
       If  the  call is successful 0 is returned, otherwise -1 is returned and
       the global variable errno contains the reason for the failure.
