Tidy 4096 char limit

7 posts in this topic

Tidy has a limitation of 4096 chars and I have an array, spanning multiple lines (see below), that exceeds this and so I get a

### Tidy Error: Concatenated Script line longer than 4095.

error. As a result, Tidy is unable to complete. I've not found a Tidy option where this could be raised.

Currently I have externalised the array declaration inside a separate .au3 file so that the remaining code can be tidied.

Is there any possibility that you could add this as an option to Tidy for future releases ?

Sorry I'm not sure this is the right location for posting this, but at least this is a section I'm allowed to create a new topic (I'm a new member)

The declaration is as follows. So in fact each line is not more than 4096 char, but the whole array is of course.

(As I'm writing this, another possibility to solve the problem would be that Tidy is taking the '_' char into consideration and would do a line by line tidy instead of a "global" tidy of the whole array)

Local $arrayLettersData[52][25] = _

[[0, 1, 1, 1, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0, 1, 1, 0, 0, 1, 1], _

[1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 1, 1, 0, 1, 1, 0, 0, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0, 1], _

[0, 1, 1, 1, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 1, 1, 0, -1, 0, 0, 1, 0, -1, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 1], _

[0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 1, 1, 0, 1, 1, 0, 0, 1, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0, 1], _

...

One way around this is to create temporary arrays that hold the values and keeping the character count under 4096, and then merging them together later in the script.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

Odd ... Tidy on this side is not even giving a peep when running it on a file THAT contains a code-text-line* that's longer than 4096 characters. ... Perhaps a update might be in order on your side

*Code on a single (none multiple split) line

I also tried to remove the multiple split line and put it on one line. The error is somewhat different but it still stops:

I'm showing a version number of 2.2.0.12 but that might be a Beta version. The one I used before that was the same as you have.

Check post, there's a new Tidy beta out that removes that limitation on character length of a line.
