That next release makes lof(), loc() and rec() terabyte capable by  
returning a SInt64. However, the SInt64 data type is supported in  
FB5's current release. This allows coding with SInt64 now until the  
next release. In the example posted today, lof() would not work with a  
large file, but testing on smaller files is possible and, if the code  
is written well, should seamlessly transition to the larger files for  
the next release of FB5
