A little background:
I have noticed that the seekg() and seekp() funtions in the Standard C++ library takes an unsigned long and a parameter (maybe a long) but when dealing with really large files like this you cannot use these functions.
Two Part Question:
Does anyone know if there are any FREE libraries out there that allow a read of this size?
Is there a way to modify VC++ 6.0 library files to acomplish this? If so, where would you start? Would you use inheritance on something like streambuf or start at a more derived level than that?
