Subject MAXHOSTNAMELEN
Date Tue, 12 Sep 1995 10:42:26 GMT
Hullo,

	I'm developing a minor fix based around the proper use of
MAXHOSTNAMELEN, which effects 2 lines in util.c.

MAXHOSTNAMELEN is defined (typically) in

	/usr/include/sys/param.h

Please can users of different platforms out there do a quick:

	grep MAXHOSTNAMELEN /usr/include/sys/*.h

or equivalent, and send me the results, along with the output from 'uname -a',
so I know what you're running.

So far I already know about

	FreeBSD		/usr/include/sys/param.h (255?, er Paul, I dun't
	   2.0.5		remember what we found, wanna check today)
	SunOS 4.1.3	/usr/include/sys/param.h (64)
	Solaris 2.4	/usr/include/netdb.h     (256)

	HPUX?
	LINUX?

	I checked Linux 1.2.8...

	o	sys.param.h contains the code:

		#ifdef OLD_LINUX
		#undef        MAXHOSTNAMELEN
		#define MAXHOSTNAMELEN        8   /* max length of hostname */
		#endif

	o	asm/types.h sez:

		#define        MAXHOSTNAMELEN  64

	o	and rpc/types.h sez:

		#define        MAXHOSTNAMELEN  64

	o	Any Linux accolytes have a clue which of these is the real
		thing?

	OtherOS?

Cheers,
Ay.
