- Subject: another minor cygcheck "nit"
cygcheck doesn't handle the "max arg length" as shown by "xargs"...
cygcheck -f /bin/*
bash: /usr/bin/cygcheck: Argument list too long
echo /bin/*|xargs cygcheck -f
xargs: cygcheck: Argument list too long
cygcheck /bin/[a-r]* # works (wc -wc = 1780 32365)
cygcheck /bin/[a-s]* # fails (wc -wc = 1874 33917)
# -- looks like a 2^15 boundary prob?
Your environment variables take up 3867 bytes
POSIX upper limit on argument length (this system): 1042661
POSIX smallest allowable upper limit on argument length (all systems): 4096
Maximum length of command we could actually use: 1038794
Size of command buffer we are actually using: 1042661
Guess cygcheck isn't a POSIX app?
