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



NAME
       getsid - get session ID

SYNOPSIS
       #include <unistd.h>

       pid_t getsid(pid_t pid);

   Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

       getsid(): _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 500

DESCRIPTION
       getsid(0)  returns the session ID of the calling process.  getsid(p) returns 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.)

RETURN VALUE
       On success, a session ID is returned.  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 calling  process,  and  the
              implementation considers this an error.

       ESRCH  No process with process ID p was found.

VERSIONS
       This system call is available on Linux since version 2.0.

CONFORMING TO
       SVr4, POSIX.1-2001.

NOTES
       Linux does not return EPERM.
