NAME         top

       termio - System V terminal driver interface

DESCRIPTION         top

       termio is the name of the old System V terminal driver interface.
       This interface defined a termio structure used to store terminal
       settings, and a range of ioctl(2) operations to get and set terminal

       The termio interface is now obsolete: POSIX.1-1990 standardized a
       modified version of this interface, under the name termios.  The
       POSIX.1 data structure differs slightly from the System V version,
       and POSIX.1 defined a suite of functions to replace the various
       ioctl(2) operations that existed in System V.  (This was done because
       ioctl(2) was unstandardized, and its variadic third argument does not
       allow argument type checking.)
