Does it want something like sed or awk? Sorry not understanding the question. When I took the Solaris test it was mostly multiple guess. Do you have the question?

"man largefile" will tell you:

"A large file is a regular file whose size is greater than or equal to 2 Gbyte ( 2^31 bytes). A small file is a regular file whose size is less than 2 Gbyte."
