Well, yes, all of the traditional old 32-bit systems previously could
not hold files larger than 2G because of the 32-bit signed integer
size limitation.  It really isn't HP-UX in particular.  But talking
about HP-UX 10.20 in particular last updated in 1996 introduced large
file support.  All releases since have supported it.  But the program
must be compiled with "-D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64" in order to enable it.
(Because changing the default could break some older programs that
were not expecting a 64-bit off_t type.)
