      Description

      Hello,

      At the moment the documentation does not state the maximum length of the string type.
      Empirical tests show that these limits are version dependent and quite low (between 4k and 8k).

      Summary:

      • 3.3.9/3.4.2: ~4053 characters
      • 3.5.2: ~8026 characters

      (More precision and protocol used here: http://www.loicp.eu/blog/cfengine_maximum_strings_length )
