vhangup(2) System Calls Manual vhangup(2)

vhangup - virtually hangup the current terminal

Standard C library (libc, -lc)

#include <unistd.h>
int vhangup(void);
Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):


    Since glibc 2.21:
    In glibc 2.19 and 2.20:
    Up to and including glibc 2.19:

vhangup() simulates a hangup on the current terminal. This call arranges for other users to have a “clean” terminal at login time.

On success, zero is returned. On error, -1 is returned, and errno is set to indicate the error.

The calling process has insufficient privilege to call vhangup(); the CAP_SYS_TTY_CONFIG capability is required.
