libssh2_sftp_seek - Man Page

set the read/write position indicator within a file


#include <libssh2.h>
#include <libssh2_sftp.h>

void libssh2_sftp_seek(LIBSSH2_SFTP_HANDLE *handle, size_t offset);


Deprecated function. Use libssh2_sftp_seek64(3) instead!

handle - SFTP File Handle as returned by libssh2_sftp_open_ex(3)

offset - Number of bytes from the beginning of file to seek to.

Move the file handle's internal pointer to an arbitrary location.  Note that libssh2 implements file pointers as a localized concept to make  file access appear more POSIX like. No packets are exchanged with the server  during a seek operation. The localized file pointer is simply used as a  convenience offset during read/write operations.
