Subject [jira] Commented: (STDCXX-543) test suite failures due excessively long command lines
Date Mon, 12 Nov 2007 17:18:51 GMT


Farid Zaripov commented on STDCXX-543:

This issue shouldn't closed until the syntax of the command line of the exec utility will
be changed to unix style.

And possibly the unix makefiles should be updated to pass the list of the executables using
the external file if the resulting command line is too long.

Scheduled to 4.2.1.

> The test infrastructure (the exec utility to be exact) fails on platforms such as Windows
2000 that impose a low limit on the length of the command line. See the following post:
> 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.
