Why would you need to increase it???
does it matter?
because I want longer filenames.
Specifically, Windows allows 255 character filenames.
I pass the files to Linux.
I then try to run SVN to import the files.
SVN wants to add 9 characters '.svn-base' to the end of the file.
Can't open file 'Home/xapp7/.svn/text-base/THE_VERY_LONG_FILENAME_HERE.xp.svn-base': File name too long
I can't control the length of the supplied files.
If only I could extend linux filenames by 10 chars, i could be confident of covering any file.
I can see this coming up in other scenarios... so... the question remains -- is it softcoded or are both Operating Systems limited to 255?
