NAME

       vhangup - virtually hangup the current tty

SYNOPSIS

       #include <unistd.h>

       int vhangup(void);

   Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

       vhangup(): _BSD_SOURCE || (_XOPEN_SOURCE && _XOPEN_SOURCE < 500)

DESCRIPTION

       vhangup()  simulates  a  hangup  on  the  current  terminal.  This call
       arranges for other users to have a “clean” tty at login time.

RETURN VALUE

       On success, zero is returned.  On error, -1 is returned, and  errno  is
       set appropriately.

ERRORS

       EPERM  The   calling   process   has  insufficient  privilege  to  call
              vhangup(); the CAP_SYS_TTY_CONFIG capability is required.

CONFORMING TO

       This call is  Linux-specific,  and  should  not  be  used  in  programs
       intended to be portable.
