     stty, gtty — set and get terminal state (defunct)

     #include <sgtty.h>

     stty(int fd, struct sgttyb *buf);

     gtty(int fd, struct sgttyb *buf);

     These interfaces are obsoleted by ioctl(2).  They are available from the
     compatibility library, libcompat.

     The stty() function sets the state of the terminal associated with fd.
     The gtty() function retrieves the state of the terminal associated with
     fd.  To set the state of a terminal the call must have write permission.

     The stty() call is actually ‘ioctl(fd, TIOCSETP, buf)’, while the gtty()
     call is ‘ioctl(fd, TIOCGETP, buf)’.  See ioctl(2) and tty(4) for an

     If the call is successful 0 is returned, otherwise -1 is returned and the
     global variable errno contains the reason for the failure.

     ioctl(2), tty(4)

     The stty() and gtty() functions appeared in 4.2BSD.
