I wanted to recompile 'xxd' (written in C), so I installed CodeBlocks as the IDE.
All seemed to go well unil I discovered that I couldn't write past the 2.0 GB barrier...
I've read that 'gcc' needs to be recompiled... (That sounds a bit dramatic..)
I've read that I can use 'fread64()' instead of 'fread()' ... (didn't work)
I've read something about a compiler options (?)... but I get lost at that point?
I am surprised that it didn't work out-of-the-box, as I thought the 2.0 GB limit was ancient history as far as defaults go ... wrong again?:(
My OS is 32-bit, on 32-bit hardware.
The gcc version report in as: gcc (Ubuntu 4.4.3-4ubuntu5) 4.4.3
Is there a simple way around this issue?
PS.. I was fascinated by the WARNINGS: section of 'info xxd' (..only on Linux ;)
