Date Wed, 05 Sep 2007 23:09:33 GMT


Martin Sebor reassigned STDCXX-543:

    Assignee: Andrew Black

Andrew, I'm assigning this to you. It would be great to implement this enhancement to exec
before the 4.2 release if you have time. Otherwise, please schedule it for 4.2.1.

> As Farid says in his post, to prevent such failures, excessively long command lines need
to be written to a temporary file by the infrastructure and subsequently read from it by the
exec utility.
