more bug citation needed

#1 Post by Sponge Belly » 02 Apr 2013 10:45

Dear Batchers,

It was recently discovered that more will wait for a keypress after 65,535 lines, even if output is redirected to a file or sent down a pipe. But who was the first to report this bug? Is there a link to a post on a forum somewhere? I couldn’t find anything. :-(

I will see if I can find it. I remember being apart of that thread.

Hi Squashman!

That was you? Should have guessed. ;-)

I tried googling, but the words more“” and “bug” are too common and I couldn’t sift through all the results.

Thanks for the link… btw, what is Ed talking about in that thread? Near as I can tell, he’s trying to output a range of lines from a file. Did he ever get it working, I wonder?

The search function on the forums is not very good. I usually use Google because it does a hell of a job indexing this site.
