Example usage:

void vSampleFunction( char *pcFileName, long lTruncatePosition )
F_FILE *pxFile;

/* Open the file specified by the pcFileName parameter. */
pxFile = f_open( pcFileName, "r+" );

/* Move the current read/write position to the position specified by
the lTruncatePosition parameter. */

f_seek( pxFile, lTruncatePosition, F_SEEK_SET );

/* Truncate the file so all data past the current file position is lost. */
if( f_seteof( pxFile ) != F_NO_ERROR )
/* The truncate failed. */

/* Finished with the file. */
f_close( pxFile );
