process group, and it has no controlling terminal. The process group
ID of the calling process is set equal to the process ID of the
calling process. The calling process is the only process in the new
process group, and the only process in the new session.

releases. setpgrp3() is functionally equivalent to setpgrp() as
provided in HP-UX 9.x.
