NAME

       tcgetsid - get session ID

SYNOPSIS

       #define _XOPEN_SOURCE 500        /* See feature_test_macros(7) */
       #include <termios.h>

       pid_t tcgetsid(int fd);

DESCRIPTION

       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

       When  fd  refers  to the controlling terminal of our session, the function tcgetsid() will
       return the session ID of this session.  Otherwise,  -1  is  returned,  and  errno  is  set
       appropriately.

ERRORS

       EBADF  fd is not a valid file descriptor.

       ENOTTY The  calling  process does not have a controlling terminal, or it has one but it is
              not described by fd.

VERSIONS

       tcgetsid() is provided in glibc since version 2.1.
