... Filepos will only accept a value up to about 42000(10) and barfs at
anything beyond... I'm not sure where to go from here, any suggestions
or should I stop wasting my time? (not really, this is a learning
experience) I could split the file in half if there's any easy way to
decrement the pointers. Oh heck, time to get some sleep. Take it ez...
Breaking it up into several files is pretty hairy but can probably be
done. I would suggest re-writing this using a software-file-array that
knows how to jump between files, but I don't think you know what you need
to do that. Maybe you should spend some time looking at .INFO.;LISP SFA
and learning what SFA's do... They are a way of creating a 'virtual
file' in software.
Maybe RWK can suggest something?
So why does FILEPOS barf on this? Is this a TWENEX lossage? Or is
MACLISP doing something wrong?
