[GRASS-user] r.in.xyz: Could open text file ~ 2.5GB

Have you tried running an identical command on a small sub sample of  
your data?

Personally, I haven't had any LFS support problems with r.in.xyz.  
This included scanning a text file for extents as your trying to do.  
After the initial thread was started with respect to r.in.xyz's LFS I  
went back and checked some of the test data sets that I have. They're  
all beyond the 2GB limit (3.7GB is the largest i've tested so far)  
and I haven't had any problems with the program. As far as I can see,  
the only thing I have noticed that is different with a file beyond  
the 2 gig size is that the progress indicator never comes up. I think  
most people can live with that. I have a 500 million point dataset  
that I'm trying to get out of las binary format right now. When  
that's done I'll pass that through r.in.xyz and report how that goes.  
I figure it'll be around 15GB in size, so if that doesn't trip up  
r.in.xyz then I don't think anything will.
