The GTBLPCT parameter indicates the initial percentage of GTBL to allocate for storage of global string variables; the remaining storage area is for global objects such as global screens, images, lists, found sets, and positions.
The GTBLPCT parameter has no effect if GTBLHASH is 0.
Resetting the GTBLPCT parameter clears the global table.
It is recommended that you set GTBLPCT high, if you have mostly global strings and a few global objects; low, if the reverse applies. For a discussion of the performance improvement in handling global variables, see global string variables.
