Re: [ferret_users] Limit of length argument

Hi Patrick,
Yes we can lengthen those limits, but you could also put your set of "use" statements into another script, so that the argument to your script is just "open_files.jnl" and then the script runs that to open all the files. Does that make sense?

Hi all,

I often use the syntax
yes? use "file1.nc","file2.nc"
to open one or several files.
it allow you to design scripts where the number of files to open is variable.

Unfortunaltely there is a limitation to 511 characters
Well indicated from http://ferret.pmel.noaa.gov/Ferret/documentation/users-guide/Grids-Regions/FERRET-PROGRAM-LIMITS "Length of arguments to go scripts 511 Maximum length in characters of each argument to a go script."

Could this limitation be increased to 1024 at least ?
