FSEEKO(3)               Linux Programmer's Manual              FSEEKO(3)

NAME         top

       fseeko, ftello - seek to or report file position

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <stdio.h>

       int fseeko(FILE *stream, off_t offset, int whence);

       off_t ftello(FILE *stream);

   Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see
   feature_test_macros(7)):

       fseeko(), ftello():
           _FILE_OFFSET_BITS == 64 || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L
           (defining the obsolete _LARGEFILE_SOURCE macro also works)

DESCRIPTION         top

       The fseeko() and ftello() functions are identical to fseek(3) and
       ftell(3) (see fseek(3)), respectively, except that the offset
       argument of fseeko() and the return value of ftello() is of type
       off_t instead of long.

       On some architectures, both off_t and long are 32-bit types, but
       defining _FILE_OFFSET_BITS with the value 64 (before including
       any header files) will turn off_t into a 64-bit type.

RETURN VALUE         top

       On successful completion, fseeko() returns 0, while ftello()
       returns the current offset.  Otherwise, -1 is returned and errno
       is set to indicate the error.

ERRORS         top

       See the ERRORS in fseek(3).

VERSIONS         top

       These functions are available under glibc since version 2.1.
