The ERRMSGL parameter indicates the number of bytes to use for saved error messages-those messages returned by $Errmsg and $Fsterr. The minimum value of ERRMSGL is 80, and the maximum is 256.

The actual length of saved messages is one less than the setting of ERRMSGL, so that the default ERRMSGL value, 80, can save up to 79 bytes of error message text.

In Model 204 V6R1.0 and earlier, only 79 bytes of error message text could ever be saved, so it was as if the setting of ERRMSGL was 80.
