These were fixed for C-Kermit 8.0 long ago.  The current release of C-Kermit
is 8.0.209.  As far as I know, HP ships C-Kermit 8.0.200 or later with all
HP-UX 11.xx's.  I suspect anybody who has "C-Kermit 6.0.192, 6 Sep 96, for
HP-UX 10.00" on HP-UX 11.00 or later must have upgraded their HP-UX version
without also upgrading Kermit.  If you have an older version of C-Kermit on
ANY release of HP-UX all the way back to 5.21, you can get the current
release here:

I fresh installed HP-UX 11.i has "C-Kermit 7.0.197, 8 Feb 2000, for HP-UX

The syntax for the ASK command requires a variable name after the word
ASK. Anyway, try it in C-Kermit 8.0:

  /usr/bin/kermit -C "ask foo `perl -e 'print "A" x 800'`"

If you increase 800 to some bigger number, the string is properly cut
off at the end of the ASK prompt buffer.

The HP-Version seems to be immune even with higher numbers.
