Hi Erik,

I remember I told you in the first mail that I can create the file in
linux and in windows (both linux and windows support it). I know exactlly
how filesystem and OS operates so I did the experiment. Why OS can not be
compared if we understand how do they implemented? Even hardware like CPUs
with different architectures can be compared if you totally understand the
inside of them.

Thanks for your replying!

Best regards!

TSVN might has the same porblem. But after my experiment, I found TSVN
works fine. So I put this result into the mailling list. I did experiments
and I want to find out where the problem is. After Erik told me that ther
is no limits in SVN itself. I turned to APR. And now I found that the
limit in APR is APR_PATH_MAX which is defined to 1024. But this value
still can not explain why svn ended with error "file name too long" for
the file name is only 200 bytes (and the full path is 281 bytes).

Look. I'm telling you "This is NOT an APR problem" as I have told you
before. You're comparing 2 operating systems, then you have to look at
their differences. Check the behaviour of the OS without any
compatibility layers.

You can compare all you want between the 2 operating systems, but I
suggest you try creating a little program which tries to create the
given file directly on the operating system (not through APR). If that
works *then* *maybe* it's an APR problem.
