paste long string

Hi,

I wanted to merge 10 files, so I used notepad because it’s handy to paste and adjust stuff. When I subsequently wanted to paste the complete string into mothur, it broke in half and was “executed” ending in an
[ERROR]: you are missing (
invalid

Selecting the first half, paste it and then copy&paste the second part doesn’t work. So I had to manually complete it.
Is there a reason why there is an apparent limit in the string length to be pasted?

Don’t want to bitch, though :mrgreen:
