Memory-mapping of bigarrays with offsets missing #4024
Original bug ID: 4024
It is currently impossible to memory-map file portions with a non-zero offset (64 bits would be required, too!) with the Bigarray module. This is quite unfortunate, because very large files that exceed the integer limits of OCaml on 32bit platforms are not fully accessible in a memory-mapped way then.
The current seek position of the file descriptor could eventually be consulted for that in the current code without changing the API. This would be a fairly trivial change.
