This is the Max configuration file.

Only options that begin in column one are processed. Anything
following a blank or tab is considered to be a comment. The
pathnames of source files may be specified. All configuration
directives are processed prior to evaluating source files.

There are many options for setting the maximum size of internal
buffers and data structures. The defaults for these are small so
that Max will run on 256 kb systems.

Option: Default: Description:

-sa 64 arguments to a function
-sb 256 length of replacement names and text
-sc 20 replacement directives
-se 512 exported name length
-sf 10 entries in free list
-si 5 nested include files
-sm 4096 total symbol length
-sn 32 nested function level
-sp 1024 program steps
-sr 32 recursion levels
-ss 128 number of symbols (vars/fns/lits)
-st 128 token length
-su 64 user defined functions
-sv 4 transient levels

Max uses special logic to check for control-c that may not work
on machines that are not PC compatible. If you get extraneous program
interruptions, use the following:

-c disable extended control-c checking

The following Max source files contain general purpose function
and preprocessor definitions:

block.max preprocessor "For ... EndFor" style definitions
window.max initialization for the MaxEdit integrated environment
utils.max utility functions, including type and dir

Use the rest of the file to specify the options and files you
would like to use every time that Max is started. Use pathnames
for default files if you do not intend to work in the Max

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
