_XOPEN_SOURCE /* See feature_test_macros(7) */
int unlockpt(int fd);
The unlockpt() function unlocks the slave pseudoterminal device corresponding to the master pseudoterminal referred to by fd.
unlockpt() should be called before opening the slave side of a pseudoterminal.
When successful, unlockpt() returns 0. Otherwise, it returns −1 and sets errno appropriately.
The fd argument is not a file descriptor open for writing.
The fd argument is not associated with a master pseudoterminal.
unlockpt() is provided in glibc since version 2.1.
