Subject Re: WWW Form Bug Report: "mod_status.c assumes sprintf returns the size of the string, but it does not in SunOS4" on SunOS 4.x
Date Mon, 22 Apr 1996 20:04:59 GMT

thanks for the report. It's now being considered on
the developers mailing list.

>Operating system: SunOS 4.x, version: 4.1.3
>Version of Apache Used: 1.1b1
>Extra Modules used: mod_status
>URL exhibiting problem: 
>At least in SunOS4, sprintf returns a pointer
>to the string written instead of the size of
>that string.  mod_status.c assumes that sprintf
>returns the size of the string written.
