SUMMARY: Pb with Head

Date: Thu Nov 12 1998 - 10:25:50 CST

My original problem was :

I have a file with only one raw of 1401 bytes name toto.ori

I made the command line:

head -1 toto.ori >

The result file is only 1023 bytes

Many Thanks to:

Michael Kriss :

The raison is:
there is a system-wide default limiting the size of a line to 1024).
The new file contains 1023 plus EOF.

The solution is to rewrite the command head to avoid this limitation.
