[TriLUG] argument list too long
Mon, 4 Aug 2003 16:51:30 -0400 (EDT)
I have a directory on a Redhat 7.2 machine that has over 11000 files in
it. If I try to ls, cp, mv or rm this I get a message "Argument list too
long". I can do what I need to do with the files in other ways, but I am
just curious is there a way to get past this. I did some google searches,
but can't find anything that clearly says what causes this limit and if
there is a way to expand it.
Thanks in advance.
