FGETPOS(P)			    POSIX Programmer's Manual			       FGETPOS(P)

NAME
       fgetpos - get current file position information

SYNOPSIS
       #include <stdio.h>

       int fgetpos(FILE *restrict stream, fpos_t *restrict pos);

DESCRIPTION
       The fgetpos() function shall store the current values of the parse state (if any) and file
       position indicator for the stream pointed to by stream in the object pointed  to  by  pos.
       The  value  stored  contains unspecified information usable by fsetpos() for repositioning
       the stream to its position at the time of the call to fgetpos().

RETURN VALUE
       Upon successful completion, fgetpos() shall return 0; otherwise, it shall  return  a  non-
       zero value and set errno to indicate the error.

ERRORS
       The fgetpos() function shall fail if:

       EOVERFLOW
	      The current value of the file position cannot be represented correctly in an object
	      of type fpos_t.

       The fgetpos() function may fail if:

       EBADF  The file descriptor underlying stream is not valid.

       ESPIPE The file descriptor underlying stream is associated with a pipe, FIFO, or socket.
