NAME

       libssh2_sftp_seek64 - set the read/write position within a file

SYNOPSIS

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

       void libssh2_sftp_seek64(LIBSSH2_SFTP_HANDLE *handle,
                                libssh2_uint64_t offset);

DESCRIPTION

       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. 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.

       You MUST NOT seek during writing or reading  a  file  with  SFTP,  as  the  internals  use
       outstanding  packets  and  changing  the  "file  position"  during transit will results in
       badness.
