xconv large file problem

Description

I'm reporting this via CMS as I'm aware you own xconv.

I have a problem with xconv which I guess is a large file issue. I have a very large fieldsfile (/projects/dymecs/paclar/xiezk/xiezka_pd000 which is about 20 Gb).

When I access this with xconv I can look at most fields, but some, e.g. w the second time in the file, gives me a 'fatal error on xconv, error in xseek in get_data'. This smacks of a computation error (maybe integer overflow?) in addressing the file. I'd assume the file was corrupt, but pumf seems to be able to find these fields without difficulty.

The default version of xconv can't read files this big. There is a development version xconv1.92 which should be able to read this file, it can be found here

/home/jecole/aix_powerpc/bin/xconv1.92 (monsoon)
/home/jecole/linux_x86_64/bin/xconv1.92 (postprocessor)
