The RECL specifier asks the maximum record length for a file. It
takes the following form:
- RECL = rcl
Is a scalar integer variable that is assigned a value
- If the file or unit is connected, the value assigned is
the maximum record length allowed.
- If the file does not exist, or is not connected,
the value assigned is zero.
The assigned value is expressed in 4-byte units if the file is
currently (or was previously) connected for unformatted data
transfer; otherwise, the value is expressed in bytes.
