Return maximum $list item length
Note: Many $functions have been deprecated in favor of Object Oriented methods. The OO equivalent for the $List_MaxIL function is MaxItemLength.
This function returns the maximum $list item length.
$List_MaxIL accepts no arguments and returns the maximum length of a $list item.
%MAX = $List_MaxIL
%MAX: Maximum length of a $list item.
The chief purpose of $List_MaxIL is to avoid having code with a constant (like 6124) whose value is subject to change. Under Sirius Mods Version 6.5, 6124 was the maximum length of a $list item. Under Sirius Mods Version 6.6 and later, some functions such as $ListLoc and $ListLup still only operate on the first 6124 bytes of $list items. While Sirius Software is not likely to reduce this value, because of the complex backward compatibility issues, it might someday increase it, as it eliminated the $list item length limit in Sirius Mods 6.6.
