NAME cfsetospeed - set output baud rate

SYNOPSIS #include <termios.h>

int cfsetospeed(struct termios *termios_p, speed_t speed);

DESCRIPTION The cfsetospeed() function shall set the output baud rate stored in the structure pointed to by termios_p to speed.

There shall be no effect on the baud rates set in the hardware until a subsequent successful call to tcsetattr() with the same termios struc- ture. Similarly, errors resulting from attempts to set baud rates not supported by the terminal device need not be detected until the tcse- tattr() function is called.

RETURN VALUE Upon successful completion, cfsetospeed() shall return 0; otherwise, it shall return -1 and errno may be set to indicate the error.

ERRORS The cfsetospeed() function may fail if:

EINVAL The speed value is not a valid baud rate.

EINVAL The value of speed is outside the range of possible speed values as specified in <termios.h>.

The following sections are informative.



RATIONALE Refer to cfgetispeed().
