Shouldn't you count to 2049 to get a file that is over 2GB?

Would it be possible to offload the looping from shell to a real
program? So for example
        truncate -s 2049M <filename>
should do the job. That would create a file reading all bytes as zeros  
being larger as 2G. If truncate is not available, what about dd?

The point is exactly to avoid external dependencies. Our dd on Windows doesn't do the right thing with seek=2GB (it makes the file twice as large as expected).
