GETTTYENT

Section: Linux Programmer's Manual (3)
Updated: 2015-03-02
Index Return to Main Contents
 

NAME

getttyent, getttynam, setttyent, endttyent - get ttys file entry  

SYNOPSIS

#include <ttyent.h>

struct ttyent *getttyent(void);

struct ttyent *getttynam(const char *name);

int setttyent(void);

int endttyent(void);  

DESCRIPTION

These functions provide an interface to the file _PATH_TTYS (e.g., /etc/ttys).

The function setttyent() opens the file or rewinds it if already open.

The function endttyent() closes the file.

The function getttynam() searches for a given terminal name in the file. It returns a pointer to a ttyent structure (description below).

The function getttyent() opens the file _PATH_TTYS (if necessary) and returns the first entry. If the file is already open, the next entry. The ttyent structure has the form:


struct ttyent {
    char *ty_name;     /* terminal device name */
    char *ty_getty;    /* command to execute, usually getty */
    char *ty_type;     /* terminal type for termcap */
    int   ty_status;   /* status flags */
    char *ty_window;   /* command to start up window manager */
    char *ty_comment;  /* comment field */
};

ty_status can be:


#define TTY_ON     0x01  /* enable logins (start ty_getty program) */
#define TTY_SECURE 0x02  /* allow UID 0 to login */
