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. lib-
       ssh2 implements file pointers as	a localized concept to make  file  ac-
       cess  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" dur-
       ing transit will	results	in badness.
