Large File Support ======================================== Some commands on bigdipper do not have support for files larger that 2 GB. See "man largefile" for a list of commands which have large file support. In particular the "bzip2" is a 32 bit executable on bigdipper and therefore may truncate large files. If you need to manipulate files larger than 2 GB, it is recommended that an HPC system or Linux Workstation be used. If you have questions, please contact User Support.
