in reply to Re^3: File seek
in thread File seek

seek (file, distance, from)

As you can see, seek requires three arguments:

file: which is the file variable representing the file in which to skip

distance: which is an integer representing the number of bytes (characters) to skip

from:which is either 0, 1, or 2

0 - The number of bytes to skip from beginning of the file.

1 - The number of bytes to skip from current location of the file.

2 - The number of bytes to skip from end of the file.

seek(CONFIRMEDOUTPUTFILE, -500, 2);

The above line skip backward 500 bytes from the end of the file.
