Subject: [boost] reducing file size after I am done with an mmap

Is there some way to downsize a file?
More specifically, if I open a filebuff:
then space forward, write a character, f.pubseekoff( 10000, std::ios_base::beg); write a character, f.sputc(0); f.pubsync(); Is there someway for me to "unwrite the character", and reduce the file size? I am in a situation where I am allocating big files for mmap's, and then when I am done, I have a lot of unused space which I would like to release.
