From phil@finchcomputer.com

I did as much homework as I could, but I believe this is a bug. I
deal with some *very* large files and for some reason Perl stat
doesn't seem to handle large files properly on digital unix. Stat
appears to return an incorrect value for what appears to be any file
over 2GB in size.

Details, including output from perlbug below unfortunately I didn't
find a fix for it yet...

Details...

* The system (Digital UNIX 4, Perl 5.005_03)​:
  bambam% uname -a
  OSF1 bambam V4.0 1091 alpha

* The file (at least a typical one)​:
  bambam% ls -l SUBSCR_COMMENTS_DLY1.UNL_SUBR01_19990803\;1
  -rw-rw-r-- 1 jyi stmslrpt 25084568025 Aug 4 15​:02
  SUBSCR_COMMENTS_DLY1.UNL_SUBR01_19990803;1

* The C program (works!)​:
  #include <sys/types.h>
  #include <sys/stat.h>
  main() {
  struct stat stb;
  stat("./SUBSCR_COMMENTS_DLY1.UNL_SUBR01_19990803;1", &stb);
  printf("size(%lu)\n", stb.st_size);
  }
  bambam% ./a.out
  size(25084568025)

* The Perl program(FAILS, wrong file size!)​:
  #!/opt/dtv/bin/perl -w
  @​st=stat("SUBSCR_COMMENTS_DLY1.UNL_SUBR01_19990803;1");
  print "$st[7]\n";
  bambam% ./badstat.pl
  -685235751

* The Perl program through the debugger​:
  bambam% /opt/dtv/bin/perl -d ~/badstat.pl
 
  Loading DB routines from perl5db.pl version 1.0402
  Emacs support available.
 
  Enter h or `h h' for help.
 
  main​::(/home/lobbesp/badstat.pl​:2)​:

  DB<1> n
  main​::(/home/lobbesp/badstat.pl​:3)​:
  3​: print "$st[7]\n";
  DB<1> x @​st

  Debugged program terminated. Use q to quit or R to restart,
  use O inhibit_exit to avoid stopping after program termination,
  h q, h R or h O to get additional info.

From @jhi

Thanks for your report. Yes, unfortunately there are still many bugs
in Perl related to handling files larger than 2 gigabytes. This is
one of them. We will try to enhance these matters for the upcoming
Perl 5.6 release (no schedule commitments, but hopefully this year).
