Thanks to those who answered my previous questions regarding FB^3. I have another question that I thought of just after posting my original message, and it is this: Will FB^3 have the pesky 255-character limit on strings? Icky languages such as Delphi (a visual implementation of object pascal for the peecee) support string lengths of up to 4 gigabytes and suchlike. What is the planned string length restriction in FB^3? Thanks for your time, James Tolchard.
