$ret.off

This is set to the corresponding integer byte offset into the current search buffer of the start of the hit, for rex and split (here). In syntax version 8 and later, it is set to the int64 file offset corresponding to the start of the returned line, by <readln> (here). All variables beginning with the prefix $ret. should be considered reserved for future use as special variables in Vortex.
