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



NAME
       fseeko, ftello - seek to or report file(1,n) position

SYNOPSIS
       #include <stdio.h>

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

       off_t ftello(FILE *stream);

DESCRIPTION
       The  fseeko()  and  ftello()  functions  are  identical  to fseek() and
       ftell() (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 many architectures both off_t and long are 32-bit types, but  compi-
       lation with
              #define _FILE_OFFSET_BITS 64
       will turn off_t into a 64-bit type.

NOTES
       These  functions  are found on SysV-like systems.  They are not present
       in(1,8) libc4, libc5, glibc 2.0 but available since glibc 2.1.

CONFORMING TO
       The fseeko and ftello functions conform to SUSv2.
