PTSNAME

Section: Linux Programmer's Manual (3)
Updated: 2017-09-15
Index Return to Main Contents
 

NAME

ptsname, ptsname_r - get the name of the slave pseudoterminal  

SYNOPSIS

#include <stdlib.h>

char *ptsname(int fd);
int ptsname_r(int fd, char *buf, size_t buflen);

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

ptsname():

Since glibc 2.24:
    _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 500 ||
        (_XOPEN_SOURCE && _XOPEN_SOURCE_EXTENDED)
Glibc 2.23 and earlier:
    _XOPEN_SOURCE

ptsname_r():
    _GNU_SOURCE  

DESCRIPTION

The ptsname() function returns the name of the slave pseudoterminal device corresponding to the master referred to by fd.

The ptsname_r() function is the reentrant equivalent of ptsname(). It returns the name of the slave pseudoterminal device as a null-terminated string in the buffer pointed to by buf. The buflen argument specifies the number of bytes available in buf.  

RETURN VALUE

On success, ptsname() returns a pointer to a string in static storage which will be overwritten by subsequent calls. This pointer must not be freed. On failure, NULL is returned.

On success, ptsname_r() returns 0. On failure, a nonzero value is returned and errno is set to indicate the error.  

ERRORS

EINVAL
(ptsname_r() only) buf is NULL. (This error is returned only for glibc 2.25 and earlier.)
ENOTTY
fd does not refer to a pseudoterminal master device.
ERANGE
(ptsname_r() only) buf is too small.
 

VERSIONS

ptsname() is provided in glibc since version 2.1.

CONFORMING TO

ptsname():
 POSIX.1-2001, POSIX.1-2008.

ptsname() is part of the UNIX 98 pseudoterminal support (see pts(4)).

ptsname_r() is a Linux extension, that is proposed for inclusion in the next major revision of POSIX.1 (Issue 8). A version of this function is documented on Tru64 and HP-UX, but on those implementations, -1 is returned on error, with errno set to indicate the error. Avoid using this function in portable programs.
