Thanks for all your answers, as I understand the tiff format itself is limitated to 4GB files(provided that toff_t is declared as unsigned long) but there are also some platform specific limitations that need to be solved Individually.

Correct.

I personnaly work on Mac so I'll have to check if the file IO functions can support 4GB files.

IF you are working with Mac OS 9.x and later, then you should be OK with UP TO 4G files. You won't be able to use a file larger than that without replacing the standard C library API calls currently used by libTIFF with a newer set of Mac-centric API calls that support larger sizes.
