FTELL(3P)		   POSIX Programmer's Manual		     FTELL(3P)

PROLOG
       This  manual  page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual.  The Linux
       implementation of this interface may differ (consult the	 corresponding
       Linux  manual page for details of Linux behavior), or the interface may
       not be implemented on Linux.

NAME
       ftell, ftello - return a file offset in a stream

SYNOPSIS
       #include <stdio.h>

       long ftell(FILE *stream);

       off_t ftello(FILE *stream);

DESCRIPTION
       The ftell() function shall obtain the current value of  the  file-posi‐
       tion indicator for the stream pointed to by stream.

       The  ftello()  function shall be equivalent to ftell(), except that the
       return value is of type off_t.

RETURN VALUE
       Upon successful completion, ftell()  and	 ftello()   shall  return  the
       current value of the file-position indicator for the stream measured in
       bytes from the beginning of the file.

       Otherwise, ftell()  and ftello()	 shall return -1,  cast	 to  long  and
       off_t respectively, and set errno to indicate the error.

ERRORS
       The ftell()  and ftello()  functions shall fail if:

       EBADF  The  file	 descriptor  underlying	 stream	 is  not  an open file
	      descriptor.

       EOVERFLOW
	      For ftell(), the current file offset cannot be represented  cor‐
	      rectly in an object of type long.

       EOVERFLOW
	      For ftello(), the current file offset cannot be represented cor‐
	      rectly in an object of type off_t.

       ESPIPE The file descriptor underlying stream is associated with a  pipe
	      or FIFO.

       The ftell() function may fail if:

       ESPIPE The  file	 descriptor  underlying	 stream	 is  associated with a
	      socket.
