seek in file

libzip (-lzip)

#include <zip.h>

zip_fseek(zip_file_t *file, zip_int64_t offset, int whence);

The zip_fseek() function seeks to the specified offset relative to whence, just like fseek(3).

zip_fseek only works on uncompressed (stored) data. When called on compressed data it will return an error.

If successful, zip_fseek returns 0. Otherwise, -1 is returned.

libzip(3), zip_fclose(3), zip_fopen(3), zip_fread(3), zip_ftell(3)

zip_fseek() was added in libzip 1.2.0.
