> Windows 10 Anniversary Edition allows the user to remove the 260 character limitation in MAX_PATH — any thoughts on updating the code to handle longer paths?
Current SQLite can already do that, no need for Windows 10 even, just use the
"win32-longpath" VFS, and prefix all paths with a special prefix.
My personal opinion is that this is clumsy, it would be much easier for
if SQLite added this special prefix internally without the user noticing.
Actually ... I have a patch for SQLite doing exactly that.
If someone is interested, just let me know, I'm happy to provide
this patch to the SQLite developers, or anyone else interested.
