Hello, *again*, dd

Well I've never heard of this caper before but what I'd do would be a
Google search for e.g. nFileSizeHigh and read the first few articles ...
in particular the first one which warns about bulldust on the MS website :-)

HTH,
John

P.S. You have heard of Google, haven't you?

Shift nFileSizeHigh by 32 and add FileSizeLow.

Uh-ohh. Here we have yet another manifestation of the Y2K bug's little
sibling, the F2G bug.

The above doesn't work for 2GB <= filesize < 4GB, 6GB <= filesize < 8GB,
etc. See below.

Those two items are defined as int (that's *signed* int) -- so if the
punter has a 3 GB file, nFileSizeHigh will be zero and nFileSizeLow will
be -1073741824. *Minus* 1 GB? Hey, d00d, who stole my file-system?

Try this:

fsz = (hi << 32) + lo
if lo < 0:
fsz += 0x100000000

This problem is described in the first article found by googling for
"nFileSizeHigh" , as I suggested to the OP. Here is some evidence:

|>>> import win32file
|>>> d = win32file.FindF ilesW(u'gb3.txt ')

<PyTime:30/05/2006 9:59:06 PM>, 0, -1073741824, 0, 0, u'gb3.txt', u'')]
|>>> hi, lo = d[0][4:6]
|>>> hi, lo
(0, -1073741824)
|>>> fsz = (hi << 32) + lo
|>>> fsz
-1073741824
|>>> # if lo < 0:
|... fsz += (1 << 32)
|>>>
|>>> fsz
3221225472L
|>>>

Cheers,
John
