Synopsis: Extremely long pathnames/filenames cannot be accessed.

State-Changed-From-To: open-closed
State-Changed-By: wrowe
State-Changed-When: Wed Jan  9 07:53:26 PST 2002
State-Changed-Why:

This is not a bug, it is by [Microsoft's] design.

Apache 2.0 supports extremely long path names, on WinNT
and cousins (2000, XP), but long path names >260 characters
will still not be supported on Win9x (or ME).

This is a restriction on the Win32 API.  The introduction
of huge path names requires Unicode file path arguments
to system calls, and this only became possible under the
APR library with Apache 2.0.

Synopsis-Changed-From: Extremely long pathnames/filenames cannot be accessed.
Synopsis-Changed-To: Path names > 255 characters cannot be accessed on Win32
