Reserved variable holding the maximum number of lines to search.




Both find and qfind search until they find their target, reach the end of the file, or have searched through maxfind lines. The default value for maxfind is 1000.

Like most variables, the value of maxfind can be changed via the set command.

This reserved variable is used to speed up file identification by limiting the number lines that will be searched through in a file before Import decides that a given ID pattern is not present.
