RETURN VALUEOn success, zero is returned. On error, -1 is returned, and errno is set appropriately.
- The calling process has insufficient privilege to call vhangup(); the CAP_SYS_TTY_CONFIG capability is required.
CONFORMING TOThis call is Linux-specific, and should not be used in programs intended to be portable.
