Hi all,

First post. Long time lurker.

Jim's MMEdit in the Reports gives lines longer than 80 characters if they exist. I was wondering if these longer lines actually use more memory than if they were split. Mainly concerned with a CMM. I do use the "Crunch" feature

Thanks
Chopperp

Welcome to the forum.

A line longer than 80 characters is only a problem when you try and use the built-in editor.

MMBasic can handle lines up to 255 characters.
I doubt is there is much difference in performance or memory usage comparing long lines to shorter ones.

Apart from removing leading and trailing white space and comments, 'crunch' does nothing to line length.

Jim

Hi Jim

Thanks for that. I remember now something about the 255 characters.
Crunch is great!!!
