SEEK(2) SEEK(2) NAME seek - change file offset SYNOPSIS #include <u.h> #include <libc.h> vlong seek(int fd, vlong n, int type) DESCRIPTION Seek sets the offset for the file associated with fd as fol- lows: If type is 0, the offset is set to n bytes. If type is 1, the pointer is set to its current loca- tion plus n. If type is 2, the pointer is set to the size of the file plus n. The new file offset value is returned. Seeking in a directory is not allowed. Seeking in a pipe is a no-op. SOURCE /sys/src/libc/9syscall SEE ALSO intro(2), open(2) DIAGNOSTICS Sets errstr.
