This module provides an interface to the POSIX calls for tty I/O control. For a complete description of these calls, see the POSIX or Unix manual pages. It is only available for those Unix versions that support POSIX termios style tty I/O control (and then only if configured at installation time).
All functions in this module take a file descriptor fd as their
first argument. This can be an integer file descriptor, such as
sys.stdin.fileno(), or a file object, such as
This module also defines all the constants needed to work with the functions provided here; these have the same name as their counterparts in C. Please refer to your system documentation for more information on using these terminal control interfaces.
The module defines the following functions:
[iflag, oflag, cflag, lflag, ispeed, ospeed, cc
]where cc is a list of the tty special characters (each a string of length 1, except the items with indices VMIN and VTIME, which are integers when these fields are defined). The interpretation of the flags and the speeds as well as the indexing in the cc array must be done using the symbolic constants defined in the termios module.
