Subject: Re: set max rec length
in your file statement use the "lrecl=" option to set the record size. By
default its set to 256.

Subject: Q: set max rec length
in unix, i am unable to write a record to a text file that is longer
than 256 bytes (using sas). in pc sas i get the same results - can
write out to 256 but beyond that problems.
is there a sas option that is limiting the maximum record length?
(blksize and linesize don't seem to do it.)
thanks for any help you can provide!!!
