- compiles on a glibc-2.2 system without --with-largefile
- ----------- "---------------- with --with-largefile
- same tests on other UNIX systems (FreeBSD, Debian ports,
any non-linux-but-still-unix systems you can get your hands on :))
I'm especially puzzled by the fseek/ftell problem. It seems that there is
no standard way to get/set the numerical position of a 64bit file on a
32bit platform just using the C/C++ standard libraries. This means that to
work on 64bit files, you either need a real 64bit platform, or you need to
use the routines that are part of Single Unix specification (or other
In other words, this seems like a very common problem, which must have
been solved at least a million times in various sw-packages... hmm, this
