Default Question: What size should I expect from a SFF file?

I am building a FastQ/SFF viewer/editor ( tool with graphic interface.
The FastQ part is almost ready. Now I am adding support for SFF. What is the maximum size of a SFF file? Is it limited to 4GB?

No, but the Roche SSF indexes are limited to (nearly) 4GB. Larger SFF files are possible.
