This section documents some relevant limits when using Dataplot.
Note that many of these limits can be set (in the file DPCOPA.INC)
before Dataplot is compiled on a specific system. The limits below
are the default values, but the limits for your specific system may
be set differently.
 MAXOBV = 2,000,000
Defines the maximum number of observations for a single
variable. This is the parameter most likely to be modified
before Dataplot is compiled. It will typically be in the
range 1,000,000 to 2,000,000.
 MAXOBW = 10*MAXOBV
Defines the total size of the data work space. Note that
the DIMENSION command can be used to reallocate between
rows and columns with the restriction that the maximum
number of rows cannot exceed MAXOBV.
 MAXPOP = 2*MAXOBV
Defines the maximum number of points on a plot.
 MAXNME = 50000
Define the maximum number of names (variables, parameters,
strings, matrices).
 MAXSTR = 255
Defines the maximum number of characters in a single command
line.
 MAXEDC = 24*MAXOBV
Defines the maximum number of characters that the EDIT/FED
command can accomodate.
 MAXEDL = 25000
Defines the maximum number of lines for the EDIT/FED command.
 MAXCMP = 35
Defines the maximum number of coefficients in multilinear
regression.
 MAXLIS = 200
MAXCIS = 255
Define the maximum number of lines/columns in the LIST/SAVE
table.
 MAXLIL = 20000
MAXCIL = 255
Define the maximum number of lines/columns in the LOOP table.
 MAXLIP = 20
Define the maximum number of lines in the REPLOT table.
 MAXPM = 200
Define the maximum number of pixmaps that can be saved.
 MAXTOM = 46*MAXOBV/3
Define the maximum size (rows times columns) for a matrix.
Note that the DIMENSION MATRIX command can be used to
specify the allocation between rows and columns in the matrix.

title or label.
 MAXLG2 = 200
