     #include <unistd.h>
     int vhangup(void);

     set appropriately.

ERRORS

     EPERM  The   calling   process   has  insufficient  privilege  to  call
            vhangup(); the CAP_SYS_TTY_CONFIG capability is required.

CONFORMING TO

     This call is  Linux-specific,  and  should  not  be  used  in  programs
     intended to be portable.
