Comment(by mspacek):

 As a workaround for the tofile() problem, perhaps it could check if the
 platform is windows, and if so, call fwrite multiple times in say 2GB
 chunks until all data is written out.

 Unfortunately, I don't have the skills to compile on win64, let alone
 implement something like this.
