[edlug] BASH question



I guess a frig way of testing would be:

 bash
 cat /dev/zero > file

and then see if it gets past 2GB. Another potential way would be:

 strings `which bash` | grep 64

to see if the large file interface has been used, ie:

 fstat64
 stat64
 open64
 setrlimit64
 getrlimit64
 readdir64
 lseek64
 fopen64
 lstat64
