NAME
fgetpos - get current file position information SYNOPSIS
#include <stdio.h> int fgetpos(FILE *stream, fpos_t *pos); DESCRIPTION
The fgetpos() function stores the current value of the 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(3C) for repositioning the stream to its position at the time of the call to fgetpos(). RETURN VALUES
Upon successful completion, fgetpos() returns 0. Otherwise, it returns a non-zero value and sets errno to indicate the error. ERRORS
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, a FIFO, or a socket. EOVERFLOW The current value of the file position cannot be represented correctly in an object of type fpos_t. USAGE
The fgetpos() function has a transitional interface for 64-bit file offsets. See lf64(5). ATTRIBUTES
