[archive] Call Using Limitations

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 31 July 2003]

I can't seem to find this information in the AcuCobol Manuals anywhere. What are the size limits (fields or bytes) that can be passed to a called program?

RE: [archive] Call Using Limitations

I do a lot of interop between C and COBOL and can tell you that the limits are pretty high (I don't know what they are but...).

As long as you are running 32 bit software AFICT there are no limits. Ignore the 64k memory limit, that is a 16 bit program issue. The runtime passes large record structures internally as pointers so the performance is quite good. Just how much data are you expecting to pass??
