c:stdio.h:fgetpos

fgetpos

    int fgetpos(FILE *stream, fpos_t *pos);

Stores current file position for stream stream in *pos. Returns non-zero on error.

Description

The fgetpos() function stores the file position indicator of the given file stream in the given position variable.
The position variable is of type fpos_t (which is defined in stdio.h) and is an object that can hold every possible position in a FILE.
fgetpos() returns zero upon success, and a non-zero value upon failure.

    int c,i;
 
    if((stream=fopen("test.txt","r"))==NULL) {
        printf("Cannot open file.\n");
        return 1;
      }
 
    fgetpos(stream, &file_pos); 
    while((c = fgetc(stream) ) != EOF) {
     if ( c == '#' ){

           }
 
        printf("character is:  %c\n", c);
     }
 
      printf("1st Position of # is the %d Byte\n", file_pos);
      fclose(stream);
 
return 0;
}
