Good day, The RFC says that there is no limit on the size of the request. But, I remember reading that the "real world" maximum is 2048 characters, which I believe is a hard limit on some clients.
I also recall reading that there is an RFC that suggests limiting the request to 255 characters. It appears that you might be submitting a lot of data. If that's the case, you should really have your application determine the information to be submitted and then store/create them as hidden values in a form. That way, not only will you have no problems with length, but you don't have to worry about the client caching it. ============================ Darren Gamble Planner, Regional Services Shaw Cablesystems GP 630 - 3rd Avenue SW Calgary, Alberta, Canada T2P 4L4 (403) 781-4948 -----Original Message----- From: Erik Price [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED]] Sent: Tuesday, March 26, 2002 9:41 AM To: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Subject: [PHP] OT - number of chars in querystring Sorry for this quick OT question -- I'm skimming thru the HTTP spec but can't find anything that defines the character limit in GET requests. I'm writing a form that uses GET to send data to my PHP script, but I'm afraid that if the user enters too many characters then some will get cut off. Does anyone know the actual limit? If not, is there a generally-accepted maximum that is used (to assure compatibility with most user agents and servers)? Erik ---- Erik Price Web Developer Temp Media Lab, H.H.
