V7-FSEDIT-0502 *** ALERT NOTE *** PRODUCT: FSP
                                                        PROCEDURE: FSEDIT
TITLE: May receive abend when FSEDIT SCL code references variable > 200 bytes

KEYS: ABEND SCL VARIABLE LENGTH GREATER THAN TWO HUNDRED LONG PUT STATEMENT
       ASSIGNMENT BYTES WRITE ACCESS SEGMENTATION VIOLATION SASP01 SASPXQ

    You may receive an abend when FSEDIT SCL code references a variable
    whose length is greater than 200 bytes. You could receive the abend when
    you leave the FSEDIT window, when you attempt to edit the SCL program,
    or when the SCL code executes. You may also see that an assignment
    statement that sets a variable equal to the value of a variable whose
    length is greater than 200 bytes only reads 12 bytes of the existing
    value. A PUT statement may only write out 12 bytes of this long variable
    also.

    The abend may be:

      ERROR: Write Access Violation in Task (FSEDIT)

    or

      ERROR: Segmentation Violation in Task (FSEDIT)

    depending on your operating system.
