void nsISeekableStream::seek ( in long  whence,
in long long  offset 
) [inherited]


This method moves the stream offset of the steam implementing this interface.

whencespecifies how to interpret the 'offset' parameter in setting the stream offset associated with the implementing stream.
offsetspecifies a value, in bytes, that is used in conjunction with the 'whence' parameter to set the stream offset of the implementing stream. A negative value causes seeking in the reverse direction.


This method truncates the stream at the current offset.


This method reports the current offset, in bytes, from the start of the stream.
