_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);
Note: There is no glibc wrapper for this system call; see NOTES.
Note: for information about the llseek(3) library function, see lseek64(3).
The _llseek() system call repositions the offset of the open file description associated with the file descriptor fd to the value
- (offset_high << 32) | offset_low
This new offset is a byte offset relative to the beginning of the file, the current file offset, or the end of the file, depending on whether whence is SEEK_SET, SEEK_CUR, or SEEK_END, respectively.
The new file offset is returned in the argument result. The type loff_t is a 64-bit signed type.
This system call exists on various 32-bit platforms to support seeking to large file offsets.
Upon successful completion, _llseek() returns 0. Otherwise, a value of -1 is returned and errno is set to indicate the error.
This function is Linux-specific, and should not be used in programs intended to be portable.
