Hey guys I'm currently running perl 5.6.1 on Sun Solaris 8 and I am having trouble with files greater the 2 gig in size. I've checked to make sure large file support is enabled, perl -V:uselargefiles uselargefiles='define'; I have many files greater then 2 gig on the unix file system, unix utilites run fine agasint them. However perl crashes whenever it tries to open a file greater then 2 gig or write more then 2 gig of data to a file. I'm aware of the pipe workaround for reading files greater then 2 gig but I am not aware of any workaround for writing them, and I'd rather just get the large file support working. Is there anything special I need to do in the script? ideas? thanks SomeGuy

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
