NAME¶tickit_term_set_output_fd, tickit_term_get_output_fd - manage terminal output
#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 TIOCGWINSZ ioctl(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.
