Hi,

Linkage Section:
134,217,727 bytes is the maximum size. However, this same publications says there is "no limit" to the number of level 01 and level 77 items in the Linkage Section. This seems to be a contradiction. If the 134,217,727 number is correct then there can not be so many level 01 or level 77 items that their storage size exceeds this number.

Source: IBM COBOL Language Reference manual (SC26-9046-03):


Hope this helps,

Hi,

Linkage section : 134,217,727 bytes

There isn't seems to be any direct limit on the working-storage section.

Please refer to the following document for further details:

Hi VK,

I'm always curious when someone asks what one of the compiler limits is.
Are you just curious or do you have a need to know? If so, what is that need?

I'm hoping you have a business need to know. I've never encountered a need.

Thanx and

P.S.

Aaah, I rechecked your thread and see that you didn't ans any of the other ques put to you, so I guess you won't ans this one either. Oh well.
