Limits of Harbour

Limits of array elements and String Size

Q:  Clipper had a limitation of the maximum array elements of 4096.  Does this apply in Harbour?

A: No. Harbour is limited only by available memory which can allocate single process. String size is also unlimited.  In Clipper string items are limited to 64KB. The size of macrocompiler string is also unlimited anyhow if generated code will use internally jumps longer then 8MB macrocompiler will report RT error but cleanly without any memory corruption like in Clipper or xHarbour.
