gboolean seek ( GSeekable* seekable, goffset offset, GSeekType type, GCancellable* cancellable, GError** error )
Seeks in the stream by the given
offset, modified by
Attempting to seek past the end of the stream will have different results depending on if the stream is fixed-sized or resizable. If the stream is resizable then seeking past the end and then writing will result in zeros filling the empty space. Seeking past the end of a resizable stream and reading will result in EOF. Seeking past the end of a fixed-sized stream will fail.
Any operation that would result in a negative offset will fail.
cancellable is not
NULL, then the operation can be cancelled by
triggering the cancellable object from another thread. If the operation
was cancelled, the error
G_IO_ERROR_CANCELLED will be returned.
