Curl::Easy seems to have a limit for CURLOPT_INFILESIZE in Curl::Easy#http_put #64

the error i get:
integer 3154698240 too big to convert to 'int'

line 829 in curb_easy.c:
curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_INFILESIZE, FIX2INT(size));

in ruby's numeric.c
line 1599 check_int(num)
line 1646 rb_fix2int(val)

curl_easy_setopt seems to take a long but on systems where int < long the most you will get is long. there is fix2uint but still smaller than long.

what is a good way to get a long out of stat.size? or is there a way in Curb to upload this big of a file?

I'm just curious - isn't one of the problems here?


 * Maintain the state of an upload e.g. for putting large streams with very little memory
 * out to a server. via PUT requests
typedef struct {
  VALUE stream;
  size_t offset;
 } ruby_curl_upload;

  curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_INFILESIZE, FIX2LONG(size));
