Perhaps you think about the 127-character limitation in DOS. The way Make invokes programs on Windows allow command lines up to 32KB. (If the command being invoked is the stock Windows shell cmd.exe, it has a smaller built-in limitation: 8KB.) Even the DOS port of Make supports up to 16KB. That might still be ``far SHORTER than Linux'' (I assume you mean Bash on Linux), but maybe it's enough to stop talking about problems with long command lines. _______________________________________________ Bug-make mailing list Bugfirstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/bug-make
