"File too large": this errno is returned when an attempt is made to grow a file to past the limit. The limit should be really, really big unless on a dain-bramaged system; eg., on FFS, the limit is commonly 8796093022207 (2^43 - 1). Traditionally, BSD also returns this error code if a read/write call is attempted at a negative offset.
