.Sh NAME
.Nm ctermid
.Nd generate terminal pathname
.Sh LIBRARY
.Lb libc
.Sh SYNOPSIS
.In stdio.h
.Ft char *
.Fn ctermid "char *buf"
.Sh DESCRIPTION
The
.Fn ctermid
function generates a string, that, when used as a pathname, refers to
the current controlling terminal of the calling process.
.Pp
If
.Ar buf
is the
.Dv NULL
pointer, a pointer to a static area is returned.
Otherwise, the pathname is copied into the memory referenced by
.Ar buf .
The argument
.Ar buf
is assumed to point to an array at least
.Dv L_ctermid
bytes long (as defined in the include file
.In stdio.h ) .
.Pp
The current implementation simply returns
.Ql /dev/tty .
.Sh RETURN VALUES
Upon successful completion, a
.Pf non- Dv NULL
pointer is returned.
Otherwise, a
.Dv NULL
pointer is returned and the global variable
.Va errno
is set to indicate the error.
.Sh ERRORS
The current implementation detects no error conditions.
.Sh SEE ALSO
.Xr ttyname 3
.Sh STANDARDS
The
.Fn ctermid
function conforms to
.St -p1003.1-90 .
.Sh BUGS
By default the
.Fn ctermid
function writes all information to an internal static object.
Subsequent calls to
.Fn ctermid
will modify the same object.
