RE: FW: Passing large number of arguments to a program
If it is running into the maximum length of a DCL line, then why is it
that varg, varg, etc., is clobbered but the last arguments (args
144, 156, and 170 in each of the examples is good? Remember that
varg (the program name) is also good.
Secondly, in reading the DCL Dictionary on the section concerning ":=",
it says that the maximum offset to a DCL string cannot exceed 768.
These strings at their worst size do not exceed 720 in the production
In the examples I have shown, they are significantly shorter than that.

DCL only allows 8 arguments, the OP is passing the arguments to a C
program. What the OP is probably running into is the maximum lenght of a
