fgetpos - get current file position information
int fgetpos(FILE *stream, fpos_t *pos);
The fgetpos() function stores the current value of the file
position indicator for the stream pointed to by stream in
the object pointed to by pos. The value stored contains
unspecified information usable by fsetpos(3C) for reposi-
tioning the stream to its position at the time of the call
Upon successful completion, fgetpos() returns 0. Otherwise,
it returns a non-zero value and sets errno to indicate the
The fgetpos() function may fail if:
EBADF The file descriptor underlying stream is not valid.
The file descriptor underlying stream is associated
with a pipe, a FIFO, or a socket.
The current value of the file position cannot be
represented correctly in an object of type fpos_t.
The fgetpos() function has a transitional interface for 64-
bit file offsets. See lf64(5).
