Folder Name Max character length

Hi. I'm trying to find out what's the maximum length of characters a folder name can have under HPUX 11.23 and 11.31. Anyone knows this answer or tell me where I could find it?

Thanks. Pat

I believe its 80 char, but let me confirm

Hi Pat:

An easy way is to look at '/usr/include/limits.h'. See:

_POSIX_PATH_MAX

...which should be at least 255
