Mac can’t access custom /etc/hosts domains?

TIL if the lines in your /etc/hosts file are too long — that is, there are too many aliases for a host on a single line — then at least Safari and curl, and probably the whole OS, will be unable to access those hosts. I had something like this:

127.0.0.1 a.test.com b.test.com c.test.com (all the way up to z.test.com)

Eventually I found that I could not access z.test.com. The solution was to rearrange /etc/hosts:

127.0.0.1 a.test.com b.test.com c.test.com
127.0.0.1 d.test.com e.test.com f.test.com
etc

I hope this saves somebody some trouble.
