file_move function input parameter lengths


Hi all,

It's marvelous that we, finally ⚠️, have some ready made functions for file copying and file moving, etc.

However, the DS 4.2 SP07 technical manual / reference guide does not describe the maximum input length for the source and target parameters.

I am now running into an issue with the file_move function and it seems that for certain file masks, DS is dropping parts of the filename/location name.

Due to circumstances outside of our control, the file location and file names are very long and it appears that the file_move function drops everything over 100 characters - resulting in failures.

Could someone please confirm what the max lengths are for the input parameters so that I determine if this is the actual cause of the problem?
