Solaris Common Messages and Troubleshooting Guide

Arguments too long


This C shell error message indicates that too many arguments follow a command. For example, this can happen by invoking rm * in a huge directory. The C shell cannot handle more than 1706 arguments.


Temporarily start a Bourne shell with sh(1) and run the command again. The Bourne shell dynamically allocates command line arguments. Return to your original shell by typing exit.
