This question already has an answer here:
I'm asking a question based on this link How to cause "Argument list too long" error?
From the thread, I'm seeing the equivalent error, if i'm running this:
>/bin/echo `perl -e 'print "x" x 1000000'` /bin/echo: Argument list too long.
However, if I use
echo instead of
/bin/echo, it has no error, even if i exceeded way beyond the ARG_MAX
>echo `perl -e 'print "x" x 100000000'` xxxxxxxxxxx...
Here's my environment
>which echo; getconf ARG_MAX /bin/echo 2097152
I'm using tcsh.
