FSEEK(3F)                                                            FSEEK(3F)



NAME
       fseek, ftell - reposition a file on a logical unit

SYNOPSIS
       integer function fseek (lunit, offset, from)
       integer offset, from

       integer function ftell (lunit)

DESCRIPTION
       lunit must refer to an open logical unit.  offset is an offset in bytes
       relative to the position specified by from.  Valid values for from are:

            0 meaning 'beginning of the file'
            1 meaning 'the current position'
            2 meaning 'the end of the file'

       The value returned by fseek will be 0 if  successful,  a  system  error
       code otherwise.  (See perror(3F))

       Ftell  returns  the  current  position  of the file associated with the
       specified logical unit. The value is an  offset,  in  bytes,  from  the
       beginning of the file.  If the value returned is negative, it indicates
       an error and will be the negation of the system error code.  (See  per-
       ror(3F))
