comment Accessing an “unnamed” file
It turned out the file name was ^?. However to grab the file I had to rename it, but wasn't able to enter ^? via the keyboard so I succesfully used the "inode"-approach propose by Daniel Andersson. Thanks anyway.

comment Too many open files on socket
I did not try this: It might be possible to attach to the process in question using a debugger, identify stale file descriptors and close them via the debuggers command line by issuing a close(fdStale) on each of them.

Running out of file descriptor also could be hint that your app is leaking file descriptors: missing to close them if not used anymore. If this is the case, increasing the number of available file descriptors won't help in the long.

comment Opening a big file
Reading and writing files with sizes above 2GigaBytes is possible with the free VC10 (express edition) in a fully 32bit environment (OS and compiler). Although allocating chunks of that size will most probably not work, this will not keep a well designed program from modifing (editing) such big files. So there is no need to go for any 64bit tools to handle this big-file-issue.
