Request for Assist on Limits for Tests




Hi All,

I'm looking for a proper (i.e. not sneaky) way to detect the platform I am
on during testing so that some tests can be modified/skipped other than
using the standard set of dependencies. In particular, the maximum path on
current NonStop platforms is 8-bit 2048 bytes. It appears that there are
some tests - at least from my preliminary "guessing" - that are beyond that
limit once all of the path segments are put together. I would rather have
something in git that specifies a path size limit so nothing exceeds it, but
that may be wishing.

Thanks in advance,
Randall
