patch utility
« on: March 10, 2020, 03:03:32 PM »
Using PxPlus 15.10. There appears to be a limit to the number of characters in a line that the *patch utility will apply. We use *patch constantly, and it's been recently discovered that if a line is of a certain long length, the patch utility will put only a certain number of characters in. The utility will not report there being a problem (i.e. no message), and eventually we discover that our patched program has a syntax error because the line is chopped short. We're not sure if it's always been this way and we're only noticing it now, or if it's a recent development.

There's no documentation about the *patch utility, and the program is password protected.

Thanks in advance!
