Character limit to a line of code?

Recommended Posts


Is there a limit to the number of characters on a line of code? I am having problems with the declaration of a massive array, and getting a nonsense error:

test2.au3 (18) : ==> Missing right bracket ')' in expression.:

(then points to an entry in the last row)

Local $bits[26][16] = [[0x0007C0, 0x000FC0, 0x000EC0, 0x000EE0, 0x000CE0, 0x001C60, 0x003870, 0x003870, 0x003870, 0x003FF8, 0x003FF8, 0x00303C, 0x00F038, 0x00701C, 0x00701C, 0x000000], _
