Nope STGMDL(*TERASPACE) seems to simply allow teraspace storage from another program (i.e. via parm) or dynamic storage defined by %Alloc to be used by an RPG program. It apparently has no effect on the max size of an individual item.

To be sure I tried this:

ctl-opt STGMDL(*TERASPACE) ALLOC(*TERASPACE);
dcl-s array char(1000) dim(18000) based(pArray);

pArray = %Alloc(20000000);

*InLR = *On;

This uses a dynamic memory array which the ALLOC directive should ensure is in teraspace.

Compiler rejects the size of array as being beyond the 16Mb limit.

Good point Scott. I’m fairly certain that the 16Mb still applies. I’ll do some checking.

Jon,

Is this true even if you use STGMDL(*TERASPACE)?

Arrays are now only limited by the 16Mb single item storage limit (as of V6). That also means that dynamic arrays can’t get you a bigger array unless you use terraspace.

Size limit is 16Mb / %Size(arratElement) - no hard limit.
