8 Storage space restrictions

The size of a single routine must not exceed 10,000 characters. The size of a routine is the sum of the sizes of all the lines in the routine. The size of each line is its length (as defined in 4.1) plus two.

The size of local variable storage must not exceed 10,000 characters. This size is defined as the sum of the sizes of all defined local variables, whether within the current New context or defined in a higher level New context. The size of an unsubscripted local variable is the length of its name in characters plus the length of its value in characters, plus four. The size of a local array is the sum of the following:

  1. The length of the name of the array.
  2. Four characters plus the length of each value.
  3. The size of each subscript in each subscript list.
  4. Two additional characters for each node N, whenever $Data(N) is 10 or 11.

All subscripts and values are considered to be character strings for this purpose.
