I am fairly new to Cygwin (occasionally using an old version) but I now
need to write a program which can fseek() through very large AVI files
(12 GB or even larger).
I believe that large file support is in version 1.5.0 of Cygwin but
can't find any details of how to use it.
Are there separate 64-bit versions of fopen/fseek/... called
fopen64/fseek64 as on some platforms, or is there some sort of
"transparent" support where you can continue to use fopen/fclose?
And what is the integer type you need to pass into fseek/fseek64 to
specify 64-bit file offsets?
