Largefiles with Partial Content and Content-Range Header

           Summary: Largefiles with Partial Content and Content-Range Header
           Product: Apache httpd-1.3
           Version: 1.3.28
          Platform: Sun
        OS/Version: Solaris
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: Other
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: whurst@whurst.net


Hi. We still have trouble with Largefiles (2GB and more) and with (206) Partial
Content (Content-Range Headers). We have analyse the Traffic. We see the Apache
Server can not write values greater than 2GB correctly. The Content-Length will
have a negative value. I fixed this in the source, but the Problems are still
alive on the Content-Range Headers. The problem is, the internal Apache Code
will work with a LONG C-Type. The LONG C-Type is ONLY 32 bit (GCC,
Solaris/SPARC). If i compile with LARGE_FILES options (man lf64) that will not
work, because the Apache does not use OFF_T C-Type. We have fixed this manually
in serverals Sourcecodes (protocol.c, core.c, ...) but something will go
strange, the Apache will core.

We have an internal system with many files greater then 2GB. Our View-Tool will
now (after a patch party) work with Partial Content greater then 2GB. But the
Apache give us negative numbers, all the time. Our view-tool will not work ....

You can contact me all times. i try to fix the problem, but i think i need help,
because, this problem is very global.

Using of GCC -m64 (64 bit compile) -> long's are 64bit, will NOT work, because
GCC is not really 64bit able, and the code will be very very slow ....
