    Platform-independent large files?

    Is there any C++ standard way to deal with files larger than 2/4 GB? I don't even know a way to get the file size of a file that large.

    Barring that, is there a good library for cross-platform file access that is at least implemented on the most common OSs?
    You ever try a pink golf ball, Wally? Why, the wind shear on a pink ball alone can take the head clean off a 90 pound midget at 300 yards.

    Does Boost's filesystem fit that bill?

    Damn, I'm usually the one recommending Boost, I suppose I should have checked if it had that functionality first

    Thanks for the tip!
