Subject: large file in sam?
Date: Thu, 14 Oct 1999 10:03:40 -0400	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

From my reading of Pike's main paper on sam, I got the impression that
sam could handle very large files. I thought it only read in the blocks
being worked on, as it needed access to them.

I find that when I try and open an 80mb text file, I get a message
'write: ?I/O error: "Success"', and no file appears. =(  Anyone know if
this is just a limitation of the sam port to linux?  Or if there is some
way around the problem (other than split(1)!)?
