len   function



Syntax:
stringLength = len(PascalString|container$$)

Description:
This function returns the number of characters contained in PascalString or container$$. In the case of an empty string, zero is returned.

Note:
To determine the maximum number of characters that can be put into a string variable, use:
   sizeof(stringVar$) - 1
The maximum number of characters allowed in a container is theoretically 2 gigabytes, but is normally limited by available memory.
