Getting Command line on HP-UX

Hello,

I am using following call to get command line argument.

pstat(PSTAT_GETCOMMANDLINE, pu, MAX_PATH_LEN, 1,
m_ProcessStruct.pst_pid)

Can anybody tell me what is the maximux size of command line arg
that can be obtained with this call ?

I have read in the release notes of HP-UX

Patch Name: PHKL_31932

Patch Description: s700_800 11.00 pstat patch, long command line storage

Can anybody tell me what is maximum size supported after this patch ?

Regards,
Rucha

The old default was 60 chars, new value 1020

Quote:
Resolution:
This patch handles allocation of kernel memory and value
assignment of up to 1020 characters of the process command
line. Patch PHKL_25999, also needed for this
enhancement, performs deallocation of the memory.
