GETSID(2)		   Linux Programmer's Manual		     GETSID(2)

NAME
       getsid -	get session ID

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<unistd.h>

       pid_t getsid(pid_t pid);

DESCRIPTION
       getsid(0) returns the session ID	of the calling process.	 getsid(p) re-
       turns the session ID of the process with	process	ID p.  (The session ID
       of a process is the process group ID of the session leader.)  On	error,
       (pid_t) -1 will be returned, and	errno is set appropriately.

ERRORS
       EPERM  A	process	with process ID	p exists, but it is not	 in  the  same
	      session as the current process, and the implementation considers
	      this an error.

       ESRCH  No process with process ID p was found.

CONFORMING TO
       SVr4, POSIX 1003.1-2001.

NOTES
       Linux does not return EPERM.

       Linux has this system call since	Linux 1.3.44.  There is	 libc  support
       since libc 5.2.19.

       To  get	the  prototype	under  glibc,  define  both  _XOPEN_SOURCE and
       _XOPEN_SOURCE_EXTENDED, or use "#define _XOPEN_SOURCE n"	for some inte-
       ger n larger than or equal to 500.
