NAME

       getsid - get session ID

SYNOPSIS

       #include <unistd.h>

       pid_t getsid(pid_t pid);

DESCRIPTION

       getsid(0)  returns  the  session  ID of the calling process.  getsid(p)
       returns the session ID of the process with process ID p.  (The  session
       ID  of  a  process  is the process group ID of the session leader.)  On
       error, (pid_t) -1 will be returned, and errno is set appropriately.

ERRORS

       EPERM  A process with process ID p exists, but it is not  in  the  same
              session as the current process, and the implementation considers
              this an error.

       ESRCH  No process with process ID p was found.

CONFORMING TO

       SVr4, POSIX 1003.1-2001.

NOTES

       Linux does not return EPERM.

       Linux has this system call since Linux 1.3.44.  There is  libc  support
       since libc 5.2.19.

       To  get  the  prototype  under  glibc,  define  both  _XOPEN_SOURCE and
       _XOPEN_SOURCE_EXTENDED, or  use  "#define  _XOPEN_SOURCE  n"  for  some
       integer n larger than or equal to 500.
