getsid(2)			 System	Calls			     getsid(2)

NAME
       getsid -	get process group ID of	session	leader

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<unistd.h>

       pid_t getsid(pid_t pid);

DESCRIPTION
       The  getsid() function obtains the process group	ID of the process that
       is the session leader of	the process  specified	by  pid.   If  pid  is
       (pid_t)0, it specifies the calling process.

RETURN VALUES
       Upon  successful	 completion,  getsid() returns the process group ID of
       the session leader of the  specified  process.  Otherwise,  it  returns
       (pid_t)-1 and sets errno	to indicate the	error.

ERRORS
       The getsid() function will fail if:

       EPERM	       The process specified by	pid is not in the same session
		       as the calling process, and the implementation does not
		       allow  access  to  the  process group ID	of the session
		       leader of that process from the calling process.

       ESRCH	       There is	no process with	a process ID equal to pid.
