The usual way to get and set terminal modes is with the functions described
in Terminal Modes. However, on some systems you can use the
BSD-derived functions in this section to do some of the same thing. On
many systems, these functions do not exist. Even with the GNU C library,
the functions simply fail with errno = ENOSYS with many
kernels, including Linux.
The symbols used in this section are declared in sgtty.h.
— Data Type: struct sgttyb
This structure is an input or output parameter list for gtty and
Line speed for input
Line speed for output
— Function: int gtty (int filedes, struct sgttyb *attributes)
This function gets the attributes of a terminal.
gtty sets *attributes to describe the terminal attributes
of the terminal which is open with file descriptor filedes.
— Function: int stty (int filedes, struct sgttyb * attributes)
This function sets the attributes of a terminal.
stty sets the terminal attributes of the terminal which is open with
file descriptor filedes to those described by *filedes.
