[gmx-users] gmx_rescue

As suggested by Diego Enry, I have tried to use gmx_rescue_LFS to get 
at the last 85% of my 23 GByte .xtc file.  When I use the scan 
feature of gmx_rescue I find that the offsets reported become 
negative after I exceed the 32 bit limit for an integer variable. 
I've tried changing the definition of the relevant variables to "long 
long int" and recompiling but I still get negative offsets.  I'm not 
a C programmer and so I'm not sure if I'm missing something else. 
For example, do I need to compile with special 64 bit libraries?  Are 
there special compiler flags I need to set?  I'm using gcc 3.2.2 
under RedHat Linux 3.2.3 on an Opteron cluster.

Thanks for assisting,
