+Version: unspecified
+OS: All
+OS Details: 
+Status: NEW

+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: Please add support for @file command-line-as-file invocation of msc
+We are about to patch Apache Ant's <csc> task to deal with the fact that
+classic CSC on Windows cannot handle more than a few hundred arguments
+coming in via exec(), that being exactly what <csc> does when it lists a
+few hundred .cs files to get compiled.
+The fix will be that if the number of files is over, say, 200, then we will
+save all command options to a file and then call csc @filename to get the
+commands in that way.
+Please can you add support for the same mechanism to msc -if is there it is
+not documented- so that people can switch their build to msc simply by
+changing the name of the executable.
