PROLOG         top

       This manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual.  The
       Linux implementation of this interface may differ (consult the
       corresponding Linux manual page for details of Linux behavior),
       or the interface may not be implemented on Linux.

NAME         top

       tcsetpgrp — set the foreground process group ID

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <unistd.h>

       int tcsetpgrp(int fildes, pid_t pgid_id);

DESCRIPTION         top

       If the process has a controlling terminal, tcsetpgrp() shall set
       the foreground process group ID associated with the terminal to
       pgid_id.  The application shall ensure that the file associated
       with fildes is the controlling terminal of the calling process
       and the controlling terminal is currently associated with the
       session of the calling process. The application shall ensure that
       the value of pgid_id matches a process group ID of a process in
       the same session as the calling process.

       Attempts to use tcsetpgrp() from a process which is a member of a
       background process group on a fildes associated with its
       controlling terminal shall cause the process group to be sent a
       SIGTTOU signal. If the calling thread is blocking SIGTTOU signals
       or the process is ignoring SIGTTOU signals, the process shall be
       allowed to perform the operation, and no signal is sent.

RETURN VALUE         top

       Upon successful completion, 0 shall be returned. Otherwise, -1
       shall be returned and errno set to indicate the error.

ERRORS         top

       The tcsetpgrp() function shall fail if:

       EBADF  The fildes argument is not a valid file descriptor.

       EINVAL This implementation does not support the value in the
              pgid_id argument.

       EIO    The process group of the writing process is orphaned, the
              calling thread is not blocking SIGTTOU, and the process is
              not ignoring SIGTTOU.

       ENOTTY The calling process does not have a controlling terminal,
              or the file is not the controlling terminal, or the
              controlling terminal is no longer associated with the
              session of the calling process.

       EPERM  The value of pgid_id is a value supported by the
              implementation, but does not match the process group ID of
              a process in the same session as the calling process.
