What are the maximum sizes of SilkTest files and the range of valid values for the core built-in 4Test data types?

The maximum size of SilkTest files are,

  • The limit for .inc, .t, and .pln files (and their associated backup files, .*_) is 64K lines.
  • The size limit for the corresponding object files (.*o) depends on the amount of available system memory.
  • The SilkTest editor limits lines to 1024 characters.
  • The maximum size of a single entry in a .res file is 64K.
  • Testcase names can have a maximum of 127 characters. When you create a data driven testcase, SilkTest truncates any testcase name that is greater than 124 characters.

The 4Test data type Range of values are,

INTEGER

Minimum: -2147483648
Maximum: 2147483647

REAL

Machine-dependent, though on most systems a REAL is 8 bytes.
Range on x86 architectures: the value zero and the range
2.23E-308 to 1.79E308, positive and negative

NUMBER

Covers the range of both INTEGER and REAL.

DATE

Minimum: -4713-01-01 [negative numbers for dates B.C.E. (B.C.)]
Maximum: 19999-12-31 [positive numbers for dates C.E. (A.D.)]

TIME
