Subject [jira] Commented: (STDCXX-543) test suite failures due excessively long command lines
Date Tue, 13 Nov 2007 17:46:43 GMT


Martin Sebor commented on STDCXX-543:

I think we should to be careful when changing the Fix Version/s field so as not to give the
impression that the problem still exists. We fixed the "test suite failures due to excessively
long command lines" on Windows 2000 in 4.2.0, so the issue really was completely resolved
in 4.2.0. We can (and should) improve the implementation of the fix but that seems like a
separate task, unrelated to this issue.

> 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.
