Detailed Description

The actual CNTLOUT table may have varying variable lengths, depending on the data values, therefore the max possible lengths (given various practical restrictions) are described here to enable consistency when dealing with format data.

The HLO variable may have a number of values, documented here due to the 256 char label description length limit:

F=Standard format/informat. H=Range ending value is HIGH. I=Numeric informat. J=Justification for an informat. L=Range starting value is LOW. M=MultiLabel. N=Format or informat has no ranges, including no OTHER= range. O=Range is OTHER. R=ROUND option is in effect. S=Specifies that NOTSORTED is in effect. U=Specifies that the UPCASE option for an informat be used.
