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?)
