NAME
     unlockpt -- unlock the slave pseudo-terminal device

LIBRARY
     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <stdlib.h>

     int
     unlockpt(int fildes);

DESCRIPTION
     The unlockpt() unlocks access to the pseudo-terminal device corresponding
     to the master pseudo-terminal device associated with fildes.  Conforming
     applications must call this function before opening the slave pseudo-ter-
     minal device.

RETURN VALUES
     If successful, unlockpt() returns 0; otherwise a value of -1 is returned
     and errno is set to indicate the error.

ERRORS
     The unlockpt() function will fail if:

     [EACCESS]          the corresponding pseudo-terminal device could not be
                        accessed.

     [EBADF]            fildes is not a valid descriptor.

     [EINVAL]           fildes is not associated with a master pseudo-terminal
                        device.

NOTES
     In NetBSD unlockpt() does nothing.
