The source code should be able to tell. Else it would be guess-work
(maybe it's an input loop which accumulates the read bytes and checks
for overflow). If mkisofs ignores files which are too large, I don't
understand the following:

: I'm trying to burn a 4.2Gb file to DVD using k3b.
: At somewhere near the 1.2Gb level, the recording stops dead,
: yet k3b says the full burn has occured.
