REBOL does not have any limitation on the length or number of arguments. It accepts the arguments in the usual Unix way from argc and argv. If arguments are cut off along the way then this is most likely done either by the part of MacOSX that launches another program or by libc in the glue code that calls main(). -- Holger Kruse [holger--rebol--com]
