Not a silly question, but one based on false assumptions. FreeBSD has been able to create files larger than 2G for a long time. off_t is a 64-bit type, and therefore is quite capable of representing sizes larger than 2G. lseek() has no problem handling files larger than 2G. -- <Insert your favourite quote here.> Erik Trulsson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
