         +-NOMAX-ERROR-------------------------+

The maximum number of errors
svrty
The minimum level of severity to be counted. Only messages of the severity specified and greater are counted. One of:
F
Flag
I
Informational
W
Warning
E

S

Properties:

Default: NOMAX-ERROR
Phase: Syntax check
$SET: Any

Comments:

The Compiler also accepts the directive-name without a hyphen; that is MAXERROR.

If the maximum number of messages of at least the specified severity is reached then the compilation stops. The messages are only counted if produced and after any modification to the severity of the message.

Example:

Specifying the directive:

MAX-ERROR"100 E"

causes the compilation to terminate when 101 messages of severity E or S have been produced.
