Array size may be larger than 80

  • Anonymous - 2014-04-01

    The Help file claims that arrays must be no larger than 80 elements in size. I don't believe this is an absolute. It appears to me that the upper limit is determined by both the chip used and how many other variables are floating around.

    For example, on the PIC16F88, I've been able to compile an array of size 95.

    It might be better to say something like,

    "The maximum array size is determined dynamically by the compiler and depends on the particular chip used, as well as the complexity of the program. If in fact the limit is reached, the compiler will give an error message so stating. As a rule, however, arrays of size 80 or thereabouts are possible."

    Or however you want to phrase it.

    OK. A good change. I can correct the help file and republish.
