     tcgetpgrp -- get foreground process group ID


LIBRARY

SYNOPSIS

DESCRIPTION

     The tcgetpgrp() function returns the value of the process group ID of the
     foreground process group associated with the terminal device.  If there
     is no foreground process group, tcgetpgrp() returns an invalid process
     ID.

     is set to indicate the error, as follows:

     [EBADF]            The fildes argument is not a valid file descriptor.

     [ENOTTY]           The calling process does not have a controlling termi-
                        nal or the underlying terminal device represented by
                        fildes is not the controlling terminal.
