OK now I see! :)

I stopped using the "slash-free" a long time ago. Somewhere I missed "asterisk-asterisk-free".

I'm on v7r3 - just upgraded a few weeks ago. Have the latest TR.
Added **free as the first statement in one of my source members, but now it doesn't like my comments where I used single asterisk in column 7. I would have to change the comments in my source members and all the /copy members.

Eeek. Maybe I'll just leave things alone for now.

Thanks Dan (and Ken)!

Greg, I'm not sure if this was lost in the conversation, but there is a difference between /free and **free.

/free and /end-free (which we've had for years now, and which are no longer required in the latest compilers to be able to use) still limits code to columns 8 through 80.

**free is much newer, only on v7r1 and up, and with appropriate TR & PTF levels. You specify **free in columns 1 through 6 of the first statement in your source. With this, you can put live code beginning in column 1 and ending at whatever your line length happens to be.

Oh, and 112 is the default length for QRPGLESRC and is what I presume the vast majority of shops use.

So the question is... can I change this (lengthen) without screwing up
my source? If so, what is a common length?
