Hi,

Can you please let me know the maximum length of a variable that is allowed in PL1?

I'm sure YOU know what you're asking. However, it's not clear on this end if you're talking about:
1. Length of a variable name in PL/1
2. Length of a numeric variable definition (which depends on the type)
3. Length of a string variable definition

For the latter two, check the Language Reference manual (link at the top of the page, Appendix A, Limits). The first can be found in the Programming Guide (link at the top of the page, Appendix A, Limits).

Hi Robert,

I meant the length allowed for a variable name.

Thanks, I would go through the documentation you pointed out.

Regards.
