DESCRIPTION         top

       The function tcgetsid() returns the session ID of the current session
       that has the terminal associated to fd as controlling terminal.  This
       terminal must be the controlling terminal of the calling process.

RETURN VALUE         top

       Otherwise, -1 is returned, and errno is set appropriately.

ERRORS         top

              it has one but it is not described by fd.
