NAME_llseek - reposition read/write file offset
SYNOPSIS#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 associated with the file descriptor fd to (offset_high<<32) | offset_low bytes relative to the beginning of the file, the current position in the file, or the end of the file, depending on whether whence is 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 errno is set to indicate the error.
ERRORSEBADF fd is not an open file descriptor. EFAULT Problem with copying results to user space. EINVAL whence is 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; call it using syscall(2).
