NAME_llseek - reposition read/write file offset
#include <sys/types.h>#include <unistd.h>int _llseek(unsigned int fd, unsigned long offset_high, unsigned long offset_low, loff_t *result, unsigned int whence);
DESCRIPTIONThe _llseek() function repositions the offset of the open file description associated with the file descriptor fdto (offset_high<<32) | offset_lowbytes relative to the beginning of the file, the current file offset, or the end of the file, depending on whether whenceis SEEK_SET, SEEK_CUR, or SEEK_END, respectively. It returns the resulting file position in the argument result.
RETURN VALUEUpon successful completion, _llseek() returns 0. Otherwise, a value of -1 is returned and errnois set to indicate the error.
- fdis not an open file descriptor.
- Problem with copying results to user space.
- whenceis invalid.
CONFORMING TOThis function is Linux-specific, and should not be used in programs intended to be portable.
NOTESGlibc does not provide a wrapper for this system call. To invoke it directly, use syscall(2). However, you probably want to use the lseek(2) wrapper function instead.
