     tcgetpgrp -- get foreground process group ID

     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

     #include <unistd.h>

     tcgetpgrp(int fildes);

     associated with the terminal device.  If there is no foreground process group, tcgetpgrp() returns an

     as follows:

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

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

     #include <sys/types.h>
     #include <unistd.h>

     The include file <sys/types.h> is necessary.
