Under NT4, set your screen buffer to be big enough to handle
how ever many characters you expect will be fed to the command
prompt. The Command History buffer doubles as a buffer for
command length handling. I have set my command history buffer
for one particular app (lots of static libraries) to 128 wide by
4 lines deep.
This is something you can change in the command prompt
properties for NT4. This configuaration (128x4) yields 640
character command history buffer. You can change that as you
Default Win9x settings will not work when your makefile is
pushing more than 127 (128 including the "\n" character)
characters per line (512 or even 640 are not uncommon for large
GPL or LGPL software builds) to the command prompt window. If
you don't set your command prompt up ahead of time, Win9x will
choke on the data input.
Nothing real can be threatened.
Nothing unreal exists.
