3.14 Pragma: Maximum Output File Line Length
3.14 Pragma: Maximum Output File
As well as keeping an eye on input line lengths, FunnelWeb also
keeps an eye on the line lengths of product files and flags all lines
longer than a certain limit with error messages. Unlike the
maximum input line length, which can vary dynamically
throughout the input file, the maximum product file line length
remains fixed throughout the generation of all the product files.
The maximum product file line length pragma allows this value to
be set. If there is more than one such pragma in an input file, the
pragmas must all specify the same value.
pragma_moll = ps "maximum_output_line_length"
s "=" s numorinf
The default value is 80 characters.
This pragma is only one of two constraints on the length of the
lines of the product files. The +W command line option also
contributes. The actual value that FunnelWeb uses is the minimum
of the limits specified in the command line and pragmas.
FunnelWeb does not monitor the length of the lines of its other
output files (journal file, listing file, documentation file).
