Maximum size of files

Chris Swain
I just tried to create a fastsearch index for a large file containing several million structures and I get this error.

*** Open Babel Error  in WriteChemObject
  The datafile must not be larger than 4GB

Is there a limit in the number of structures that can be handled? Or would it be better to switch from an sdf file to SMILES as the input file?

Cheers,

Chris

David Koes has, I believe, already extended this limit:
https://github.com/openbabel/openbabel/pull/1546

This is now in the master, if you want to try building from the git repo.

It's a file size limit, rather than no. of molecules so using SMILES
should also help.
