#include <termios.h> int tcflush(int fildes, int queue_selector);
Upon successful completion, tcflush() discards data written to the object referred to by fildes (an open file descriptor associated with a terminal) but not transmitted, or data received but not read, depending on the value of queue_selector:
Attempts to use tcflush() from a process which is a member of a background process group on a fildes associated with its controlling terminal, will cause the process group to be sent a SIGTTOU signal.

Upon successful completion, 0 is returned. Otherwise, −1 is returned and errno is set to indicate the error.
The tcflush() function will fail if:
