I'm working on a program that needs to run on a Linux distro with an ext2 filesystem. This program will write files which may become very large. I notice that ext2 has a maximum file size of 16GB to 64GB. However, one thing on wikipedia's page that scared me somewhat is the following line:
There are also many userspace programs that can't handle files larger than 2 GB.
...when it's talking about ext2's limitations. Does this mean that I should be careful about letting a file grow larger than 2 GB?
