TERMIO(7)                  Linux Programmer's Manual                 TERMIO(7)



NAME
       termio - the System V terminal driver interface

DESCRIPTION
       termio is the name of the old System V terminal driver interface.  This
       interface defined a termio structure used to store  terminal  settings,
       and a range of ioctl(2) operations to get and set terminal attributes.

       The termio interface is now obsolete: POSIX.1-1990 standardized a modi-
       fied version of this interface, under the name  termios.   The  POSIX.1
       data  structure differs slightly from the System V version, and POSIX.1
       defined a suite of functions to replace the various ioctl(2) operations
       that  existed in System V.  (This was done because ioctl(2) was unstan-
       dardized, and its variadic third argument does not allow argument  type
       checking.)

       If  you're looking for page called "termio", then you can probably find
       most  of  the  information  that  you  seek  in  either  termios(3)  or
       tty_ioctl(4).
