Python os.ttyname() Method with example

Hello dear readers! Welcome back to another section of our tutorial on Python. In this tutorial guide, we are going to be studying about the Os ttyname() method.

The Python os ttyname() method returns a string, which specifies the terminal device associated with fd. If fd is not associated with a terminal device, an exception is raised.


The following below is the syntax for Python Os ttyname() method -

os.ttyname( fd )

Parameter Details

  • fd - This is the file descriptor.

Return Value

It returns a string which specifies the terminal device.


The following below is a simple example -

# !/usr/bin/python

import os, sys

# Showing current directory 
print "Current working dir :%s" %os.getcwd()

# Changing dir to /dev/tty
fd = os.open("/dev/tty",os.O_RDONLY)

p = os.ttyname(fd)
print "the terminal device associated is: "
print p
print "done!!"

print "Closed the file successfully!!"

When the above code is executed, it will produce the following result -

Current working dir is :/tmp
the terminal device associated is:
Closed the file successfully!!
