tell

See the current Perl documentation for tell.

Here is our local, out-dated (pre-5.6) version:


tell - get current seekpointer on a filehandle



tell FILEHANDLE

tell



Returns the current position for FILEHANDLE. FILEHANDLE may be an expression whose value gives the name of the actual filehandle. If FILEHANDLE is omitted, assumes the file last read.
