GETSID(2)		  FreeBSD System Calls Manual		     GETSID(2)

NAME
     getsid -- get process session

LIBRARY
     Standard C	Library	(libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <unistd.h>

     pid_t
     getsid(pid_t pid);

DESCRIPTION
     The session ID of the process identified by pid is	returned by getsid().
     If	pid is zero, getsid() returns the session ID of	the current process.

RETURN VALUES
     Upon successful completion, the getsid() system call returns the session
     ID	of the specified process; otherwise, it	returns	a value	of -1 and sets
     errno to indicate an error.

ERRORS
     The getsid() system call will succeed unless:

     [ESRCH]		if there is no process with a process ID equal to pid.

     Note that an implementation may restrict this system call to processes
     within the	same session ID	as the calling process.

SEE ALSO
     getpgid(2), getpgrp(2), setpgid(2), setsid(2), termios(4)

HISTORY
     The getsid() system call appeared in FreeBSD 3.0.	The getsid() system
     call is derived from its usage in AT&T System V UNIX.
