When writing directly to an IFS file and there are no limits.

You can only write so many bytes at one (depending on your version of RPG)
since RPG source fields have a max_size. But you can fill and empty that
max size buffer as many times as you need to.

What are the limits of writing a single stream record from RPGLE?
I need to write EDI unwrapped stream file, possible 10 to 100 meg (it's a
monthly file to a government agency). Am using program based on Scott
Klement's IFS samples, currently writing one record per segment, but have
not figured out how to append each segment to a single record, and what the
limits will be. File is much larger than a single field can hold. Looking
for a sample.
