tell position in file

libzip (-lzip)

#include <zip.h>

zip_ftell(zip_file_t *file);

The zip_ftell() function reports the current offset in the file.

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

If successful, zip_ftell returns the current file position. Otherwise, -1 is returned.

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

zip_ftell() was added in libzip 1.2.0.
