Hi Silvio,

I just tried a 4699722540 byte file with both Firefox and Chrome on
GNU/Linux using 'largepost.c', and it worked without a problem.

If you've compiled your own custom application, make sure you've enabled
large file support for your disk IO.  That said, I've not (recently?)
tested this on a 32-bit system. Still, MHD should handle large files
like this.

As far as file limits are concerned, the MHD_PostDataIterator is limited
to 2^64-1 bytes. MHD itself has no limit as it has no concept of files
and treats requests as a possibly infinite stream of data. However, this
requires that the client does NOT set "Content-Length" (but use chunked
encoding). If "Content-Length" is present, the limit is again 2^64-1.
Note that technically HTTP doesn't impose the 64-bit limit on HTTP, but
I'm not aware of any HTTP client or server supporting > 64-bit values here.

Happy hacking!
