I thank Gerald for helping to uncover a Gopher Server limitation. I do not
know if this is a limitation for all Gopher 0 Servers or just the GopherS
so for now I will just claim it as a GopherS limitation:
== The maximum PATH length for a file name is 106 characters (the PATH is
everything in the Gopher 0 URL that comes after the root "slash" character). ==
This means you could have a file name in the servers root directory that was
106 characters long; or, if you put the same file in a directory called "X",
then the file name could only be 104 characters long (106 minus the directory
name "X" and the "slash character").
