    Get a better compiler

    Or settle down to a long exercise of reading the disk at a low level (for a file system which your old compiler knows nothing about) and lots of reading of M$ manuals which "document" the internal details of how long filenames are stored.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.
