Why maximum 4000 characters output with xsel -b ? #13
When I compile from source at https://github.com/kfish/xsel/tree/9674445d8ea9f60f4d1a154be6fdb12e7af8f0c6 and do:
The output contains only the first 4k characters.
On the other hand, if I do ctrl + v on GUI apps like Firefox, I get all the characters.
Why this limitation? I saw the 4000 constant in the source:
but wasn't patient enough to deduce the rest :-)
Why not increase that limit a bit more?
