Err, it's the longest that *we* think the path can be.. That's not the same as actually being the longest that a path can be, which depends on the filesystem and OS... It's not hard to get past our 1024 limit: sfrost@beorn:/really/long/path> echo $PWD | wc -c 1409 > Now, you could probably write a program to exeve() a binary with argv > being longer, but in that case you can also just put garbage in there. We shouldn't blow up in that case either, really. Thanks, Stephen
