qlist text limit?

February 23, 2009 | 9:45 pm

I’m working on a patch that is entirely automated by qlist. I’m currently writing the instructions into the qlist text editor and its truncating everything after a certain point. Is there a limit to how long a qlist you can have? If so how can I get round this because I’m not even a 5th of the way through the list length I need!

How many lines does that make?

it truncates at 183 lines. This is also 2734 (2968 with spaces) characters. I cant see any significance to these numbers.

I can’t reproduce that. The following have 1000 lines (I made a test with 100k lines and it worked fine).

Interestingly, after restarting max, this now doesn’t happen. I’m having a lot of gremlins like this with this patch. Sometimes the messages from the qlist don’t turn up at the specified recieve objects, but restarting max then causes them to work.
