|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.
