Further refinements of ptsname_r(3) interface:

Authored by delphij on Oct 18 2020, 7:47 PM.


  • Hide ptsname_r under __BSD_VISIBLE for now as the specification is not finalized at this time.
  • Keep sorted.
  • Avoid the interposing of ptsname_r(3) from an user application from breaking ptsname(3) by making the implementation a static method and call the static function from ptsname(3) instead.

This should probably go with the other function prototypes in a logical order (it seems mostly alphabetical now).

Why do you want to make the function weak ?

106 ↗(On Diff #78393)

It is better to

  1. Make __ptsname_r non-static (but do not add it to
  2. Define ptsname_r as an alias for __ptsname_r. Look above how e.g. grantpt is defined.

Then you do not need this trivial wrapper.
