Synopsis

seek DEST, IO, OFFSET, STARTFLAG
seek DEST, IO, UPPER32, LOWER32, STARTFLAG
               

Set the file position of a Parrot I/O object to a given offset from a starting position (STARTFLAG: 0 is the beginning of the file, 1 is current the position, 2 is the end of the file). DEST is the success or failure of the seek.

64-bit seek combines UPPER32 and LOWER32 to get one 64-bit OFFSET.
