Maximum number a characters that can be stored in a variable in REXX is 250. But if I want to read a record which has a length more than 250 characters and process it in my REXX program, the variable will not be able to hold it.
Is there any way to handle records of more than 250 characters in REXX?
There is no limit to the length of the values of variables, as long as all variables fit into the storage available.
Implementation maximum: No single request for storage can exceed the fixed
limit of 16 MB. This limit applies to the size of a variable plus any control
information. It also applies to buffers obtained to hold numeric results.
The limit on the length of symbols (variable names) is 250 characters
