SubjectRe: When? 64-Bit lseek()?
   From: LD Landis <>

A couple of years ago, I asked the question about having large files
(that is 64-bits of addressability). Now that the POSIX definitions are
getting close to being real, (and I haven't ever seen them), what is the
replacement for lseek(2)? I see that the iNTEL version of linux doesn't
go past 32 bits at present, but many current disks are close.

There's definitely been discussion about this; talk to Stephen Tweedie,
as I think he's also expressed interested about doing 64-bit file
offsets on i386 platforms.
