Perl 5 version 26.3 documentation


  • setpgrp PID,PGRP

    Sets the current process group for the specified PID, for the current process. Raises an exception when used on a machine that doesn't implement POSIX setpgid(2) or BSD setpgrp(2). If the arguments are omitted, it defaults to 0,0 . Note that the BSD 4.2 version of setpgrp does not accept any arguments, so only setpgrp(0,0) is portable. See also POSIX::setsid() .
