Hi All,

Are there array maximums in assembler?
I know in PL/I the max for arrays are 32767. Is this the same for assembler, or is there some other number?

Thanks in advance

there is no concept of array in assembler icon_biggrin.gif

all You have is...
a storage area ( static or getmained )
an algorithm to address a byte inside this storage area- more or less optimized

so I would say that the maximum size is that of the largest getmain

I personally have seen arrays with more than 32767. Infact we have a program in our system that supports 95000 array elements. How do u say max for array is 32767 in PL/1
