in reply to Cannot retrieve more than 80 chars using DBI:ODBC

was going to make a feeble attempt at humor by mentioning that this must be a relic from Microsoft's past when they did their computing on 80 character punchcards...but then I decided it was probably just not that funny...

fwiw, Win32::ODBC handles > 80 without switches, at least that is my memory, then again I seem to have lost memories of microsoft using punchcards....wait, I decided not to go there...nevermind :-)

thankfully useful information was posted about this before I arrived

[oiskuu]: I'm unfamiliar with android or SELinux. But I believe there is nothing of a kind. Unless you play with capabilities or build your own containers/ namespaces.
[davido]: I am not finding closing STDIN to be an adequate means of making getlogin return undef.
[Corion]: Maybe doing a double-fork (daemonizing) can make go that information away, but maybe not
[Corion]: But I think my knowledge of unix/Linux datastructures is several decades out of date, so I don't really know what information it keeps on processes
[oiskuu]: The useful bits that relate to your process can be found under /proc/self. What information are you thinking of? Tty name?
[tye]: I just daemonized and getlogin() still knew who I had been.
