Handler too large or complex

Hey, we are running a script that is a little over 38000 lines long, and when we try and run the script either directly through Eggplant or with a runscript command we get the following error, "Handler too large or complex" and Eggplant locks up. Is there anyway around this or is there a size limit with the scripts? The way we are doing it right now is to break the script into 2 seperate scripts and call the second one, but the scripts are being generated so it slows the process down. Thanks!!


  • Hello, dm42--

    Unfortunately, there is no way to override that limit. Your best way would be to devise a scheme of dividing your script into several smaller ones. There is a 32,767 line limit per handler (not necessarily per script). You could modify your script generation to create several handlers and call them. Here's a "wireframe" for using handlers:
    //main script
    //script handlers
    to chunk1
    //do chunk1 stuff
    end chunk1
    to chunk2
    //do chunk2 stuff
    end chunk2
    to chunk3
    //do chunk1 stuff
    end chunk3

    However, your initial solution may be the simplest, dividing into individual scripts might be the best solution.
