tell()

fob.tell()
Returns the current position of the file object.

In text mode file reading ( r )

At the beginning of the file.
fob=open('data1.txt','r')
print(fob.tell()) # 0 

Using write mode

After writting data , the object will be at the end.
fob=open('data3.txt','w')
fob.write("Hello")
print(fob.tell()) # 5
fob.close()
We will add offset by using seek()
fob=open('data.txt','r')
fob.seek(5)
print(fob.tell()) # 5 
By using the data.txt file given at file read()
fob=open('data.txt','br')
fob.seek(-5,2)
print(fob.tell()) # 76
fob=open('data.txt','r')
print(fob.readline())
print(fob.tell())
