Alfred, I have no idea about your actual problem, since your question did not contain information about what you are trying to do, which Vedit version you are using etc.
However, I can confirm that splitter.vdm does not work correctly on files larger than 4GB.
I made a test file of size 4.3GB by combining several log files (which are plain text files).
I ran splitter.vdm and choose block size of 999 meg. This should have created 5 segments.
However, it created 6 segments.
Segments .xx1 to.xx4 were 975587kB, .xx5 was 291960kB and .xx6 was 27kB.
The split from .xx5 to .xx6 was done too early, but the data continued correctly. However, .xx6 was truncated.
If you count the sum of the file sizes, the result is exactly 4096 MB.
I used to wonder how the splitter macro on 32bit Vedit could handle files larger than 4GB. Now it seems that it can't. So, it is only useful for files in range 2GB to 4GB. This should be mentioned in the documentation.
