[osg-users] Error with InputStream reading osgb files

Hi again,

I think I've found what's going on.
Basically the BinaryStreamOperator used to read the osgb format saves the
block size currently read with an int - see here
which is not large enough to express very large blocks.

I've patched the code with unsigned int (both when writing and reading
block size, always on 4 bytes) and I can now write and read correctly the
files that showed the problem.
Of course unsigned int is not large enough for arbitrarily huge blocks, but
at least it doubles the current max size.
I'll post a pull request with the patch.

Using a type bigger than 4 bytes would make the current files unreadable,
so I don't think it's something that can be changed.
