...apparently Microsoft doesn't think it's worth it to allow long paths themselves. "To extend this limit, use the Unicode version of this function and prepend \\?\ to the path," they say. Well, it works just fine. But if you do it in Windows Explorer, the Windows Command Prompt, Windows PowerShell, and more, it fails: \\?\<absolute path including drive name> results in a File/Path Not Found error. So much for PowerShell being "powerful"; it's still limited to MAX_PATH (~260) chars!

Why did I test this? Because I am working on Unicode-enabling a piece of software that depends on the ANSI code page currently, and I'm concerned about how different paths are interpreted. However, to fully test, I apparently need to build a little file-listing utility (and no, I won't go hacking on ls from GNU coreutils just because of this; it's overkill for just listing the names associated with directory entries.) Cygwin actually does pretty well, but after a while of executing the following loop, it just continues working and sort of fails:

for i in {0..9999} ; do mkdir win$i && cd $i || break ; done

The find utility in a separate MinTTY session manages to cope well, returning paths up to a certain point, but attempting to perform cd $(find win0 | tail -n 1) didn't quite seem to work; I ended up in ...../win594/win595 when find listed up to win1608, and I can't cd to a subdirectory. ls seems to list the last directory created rather than the subdirectory of the directory that find lists (e.g. win1706 when I'm in win595). I'm not sure what's going on there honestly. If nobody has stress-tested this part, I'm not surprised. Who has a need to create paths more than 10000 chars long, where a "char" is a Unicode code point encoded as UTF-16LE, per Microsoft's definition of wchar_t?

I'd test if there's a sane limit on my Debian Jessie VM that Cygwin should be using, but I'm now cranky and demotivated, thanks especially to Microsoft. Well, there's always tomorrow...

Hand size is important, ladies?

Hmm, average, I guess. Good enough, and "good enough" has always been good enough for me. ^_^
I broke down and got The World Ends With You the other day. I found out that it was going to be a long time before I got Final Fantasy 4 DS, or Final Fantasy Tactics A2. I like the fact that you can not play it but still get experience for up to 7 […]

Ever had a song that just made you feel like you could beat the stuffing out of everybody that felt like challenging you? Well, I haven't listened to music I've enjoyed for quite some time, so when I'm blaring "More Human Than A Human" by White Zombie, you can bet I'm in the mood to kick ass.

O Music, how I've missed thee.

"I vote 'yes'. It would be nice to not want to kill you all the time."

Well, I suppose that's a good reason for voting in favor of turning someone into a vampire, Jasper... >_>

Twilight's so weird that I can't help enjoying it.

Relationships with coworkers are something to frown upon ordinarily. However, Nina and Ed just seem awesome and, more importantly, seem like they'll be awesome together (at least for right now).

He's her little Harry Potter, and she's "a golden haired, Amazon princess. Everything about her is intoxicating," to him.

And she just happens to want him to do things like ahem "ride me like his quidditch broom."

And he just happens to want to ahem "ride [her] like a roller coaster."

This is going to be an interesting comic, and I'm only at 143 of 1400-ish. :-)

This is absolutely hilarious, but I'd seriously be freaking out if it happened to me!

NEVER GIVE A FRIEND ROOT ACCESS (or always be watching over their shoulder, so they can't do this sort of thing!)

One hour later, I found a one-byte bug in my awk program: I apparently needed a newline between /^[0-9]{10}/ and {. Talk about a difficult bug to find. Can I kill mawk yet? It's a great tool, but it gets on my nerves compared with gawk sometimes! And this is definitely one of those times!

Oh well. Problem fixed! #offline

Which way would you prefer ptr to be declared?

    const char * const * ptr;

Note: there is no single correct way. I'm just curious what people prefer here (and any rationale for that preference if you feel like sharing).

With doubling *, the declaration above means "pointer to a const pointer which point to a const char".
Without doubling *, like your comment, the declaration means "const pointer which point to a const char".
