    I can't use sendfile(). I'm working with files > 4GB, and from man 2 sendfile:

    ssize_t sendfile(int out_fd, int in_fd, off_t *offset, size_t count);

    int main() {
    ssize_t s1;
    off_t offset;
    size_t count;

    printf("sizeof ssize_t: %d\n", sizeof s1);
    printf("sizeof size_t: %d\n", sizeof count);
    printf("sizeof off_t: %d\n", sizeof offset);
    return 0;

    running it

    $ ./sendfile_test
    sizeof ssize_t: 4
    sizeof size_t: 4
    sizeof off_t: 4

    as far as I'm concerned, this will not allow me to address files past the 4GB
    limit (or was it 2?)
