Increase line size of SRCSTMF on the CRTSQLRPGI command.
As an attempt to modernize my application source code I am storing my sqlrpgle code on the IBM i IFS and was attempting to use IBM Better Object Builder (BOB) to compile my code. It is frustrating though, that I still have to deal with a 100 length limit on the number of characters I can have on a line. If I store my code on IFS I should not have to worry about a 100 character limit. Please remove this limit. If not possible please make the limit much larger so under normal coding a developer would not need to worry about this limit. As IBM begins to push development teams to use MERLIN or a more modern development strategy to store source code on the IFS, this will most definitely become a huge road block to that progress.
