RE: buffersize

I was trying to copy/paste RSA-2048 into Pari, however I only get the first
255 digits.

I suppose I could read the number in as a file, I haven't tried this yet,
but I was wondering if the 255 limit could be raised to 1000 say?

How does the problem manifest itself ? Can you read in a file containing
a ligne with more than 255 chars (using \r), or is it specific to a line
input at the interactive prompt ?

I do not see any PARI-speficific setting which would cause a text buffer
overflow at 255 chars [ GP default input buffer can hold 1024 chars, and is
supposed to grow as needed ]



P.S: it's rather complicated for me to reproduce Windows-specific problems.
