    NAME

    lseek - reposition read/write file offset
     
    

    SYNOPSIS

    #include <sys/types.h>
    #include <unistd.h>

    off_t lseek(int fd, off_t offset, int whence);  

    DESCRIPTION

    The lseek() function repositions the offset of the open file associated with the file descriptor fd to the argument offset according to the directive whence as follows:
    SEEK_SET
    The offset is set to offset bytes.
    SEEK_CUR
    The offset is set to its current location plus offset bytes.
    SEEK_END
    The offset is set to the size of the file plus offset bytes.

    The lseek() function allows the file offset to be set beyond the end of the file (but this does not change the size of the file). If data is later written at this point, subsequent reads of the data in the gap (a "hole") return null bytes (aq\0aq) until data is actually written into the gap.  

    RETURN VALUE

    Upon successful completion, lseek() returns the resulting offset location as measured in bytes from the beginning of the file. Otherwise, a value of (off_t) -1 is returned and errno is set to indicate the error.  

    ERRORS

    EBADF
    fd is not an open file descriptor.
    EINVAL
    whence is not one of SEEK_SET, SEEK_CUR, SEEK_END; or the resulting file offset would be negative, or beyond the end of a seekable device.
    EOVERFLOW
    The resulting file offset cannot be represented in an off_t.
    ESPIPE
    fd is associated with a pipe, socket, or FIFO.
     

    CONFORMING TO

    SVr4, 4.3BSD, POSIX.1-2001.  

    NOTES

    This document's use of whence is incorrect English, but maintained for historical reasons.

    Some devices are incapable of seeking and POSIX does not specify which devices must support lseek().

    On Linux, using lseek() on a tty device returns ESPIPE.

    When converting old code, substitute values for whence with the following macros:
    oldnew
    0SEEK_SET
    1SEEK_CUR
    2SEEK_END
    L_SETSEEK_SET
    L_INCRSEEK_CUR
    L_XTNDSEEK_END

    SVr1-3 returns long instead of off_t, BSD returns int.

    Note that file descriptors created by dup(2) or fork(2) share the current file position pointer, so seeking on such files may be subject to race conditions.
