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

       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.

       fsetpos — set current file position

       #include <stdio.h>

       int fsetpos(FILE *stream, const fpos_t *pos);

       The functionality described on this reference page is aligned with  the
       ISO C  standard.	 Any  conflict between the requirements described here
       and the ISO C standard is unintentional. This  volume  of  POSIX.1‐2008
       defers to the ISO C standard.

       The fsetpos() function shall set the file position and state indicators
       for the stream pointed to by stream  according  to  the	value  of  the
       object pointed to by pos, which the application shall ensure is a value
       obtained from an earlier call to fgetpos() on the  same	stream.	 If  a
       read or write error occurs, the error indicator for the stream shall be
       set and fsetpos() fails.

       A successful call to the fsetpos() function shall clear the end-of-file
       indicator  for  the stream and undo any effects of ungetc() on the same
       stream. After an fsetpos() call, the next operation on an update stream
       may be either input or output.

       The  behavior of fsetpos() on devices which are incapable of seeking is
       implementation-defined.	The value of the file offset  associated  with
       such a device is undefined.

       The  fsetpos()  function	 shall not change the setting of errno if suc‐

       The fsetpos() function shall return 0 if	 it  succeeds;	otherwise,  it
       shall return a non-zero value and set errno to indicate the error.

       The  fsetpos()  function shall fail if, either the stream is unbuffered
       or the stream's buffer needed to be flushed, and the call to  fsetpos()
       causes an underlying lseek() or write() to be invoked, and:

       EAGAIN The  O_NONBLOCK  flag  is	 set  for  the file descriptor and the
	      thread would be delayed in the write operation.

       EBADF  The file descriptor underlying the stream file is not  open  for
	      writing or the stream's buffer needed to be flushed and the file
	      is not open.

       EFBIG  An attempt was made to write a file  that	 exceeds  the  maximum
	      file size.

       EFBIG  An  attempt  was made to write a file that exceeds the file size
	      limit of the process.

       EFBIG  The file is a regular file and an attempt was made to  write  at
	      or  beyond  the offset maximum associated with the corresponding

       EINTR  The write operation was terminated due to the receipt of a  sig‐
	      nal, and no data was transferred.

       EIO    A physical I/O error has occurred, or the process is a member of
	      a background process group attempting to perform	a  write()  to
	      its  controlling	terminal, TOSTOP is set, the calling thread is
	      not blocking SIGTTOU, the process is not ignoring	 SIGTTOU,  and
	      the  process  group  of the process is orphaned.	This error may
	      also be returned under implementation-defined conditions.

       ENOSPC There was no free space remaining on the device  containing  the

       EPIPE  An  attempt was made to write to a pipe or FIFO that is not open
	      for reading by any process; a SIGPIPE signal shall also be  sent
	      to the thread.

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

       The fsetpos() function may fail if:

       ENXIO  A request was made of a nonexistent device, or the  request  was
	      outside the capabilities of the device.
