uncompress core dumping - SCO

I am uncompressing a file (472355967 bytes). uncompress issues the message Signal 31 - core dumped when the uncompressed file reaches 2147483637 in size. This is very repeatable. I have a second file that is somewhat smaller in size that generates the same message at the same place. I have no idea how large the original uncompressed file is, but it is somewhere between 2GB and 3GB. Both files are compressed cpio output. What is the Signal 31 telling me? What additional information is needed to resolve this? Thanks. Steve P....

    As you don't mention the type of the filesystem you are trying to
    uncompress this file onto, I'm guessing(tm) HTFS. From TA#110337:

    "the maximum supported file size in an HTFS filesystem is 2GB"

    I believe Unixware 7.1(?) supports files larger than 2Gb.

    I had a similar problem with a compressed tar file. Uncompresssing it
    would create a file greater than 2gig and would core dump. The fix
    then, and will be now, is to uncompress and then pipe thru all in one
    go to cpio/tar or whatever you need, ie:

    uncompress -cf filename.*.Z | tar xvf - (or cpio)
