TICKIT_TERM_SET_OUTPUT_FD (3)

NAME

tickit_term_set_output_fd, tickit_term_get_output_fd - manage terminal output

SYNOPSIS

#include <tickit.h> 
void tickit_term_set_output_fd(TickitTerm *tt, int fd);
int tickit_term_get_output_fd(TickitTerm *tt);
 

Link with -ltickit.

DESCRIPTION

tickit_term_set_output_fd() associates an output file descriptor with the terminal instance. If no output function has been set by tickit_term_set_output_func(3) then this file descriptor will be used to send bytes to the user's terminal. This file descriptor will also be used by tickit_term_refresh_size(3) to query the size of the terminal by issuing the TIOCGWINSZioctl(2). The value -1 may be set to indicate an absence of a file descriptor.

tickit_term_get_output_fd() returns the currently associated output file descriptor, or -1 if none has been set.

After both an input and output method have been defined, it is recommended to call tickit_term_await_started(3) to wait for the terminal to be set up.

RETURN VALUE

tickit_term_set_output_fd() returns no value. tickit_term_get_output_fd() returns a file descriptor or -1.
