First i used 8 bytes filenames in 80s, then 16, 32, 64. In 90s i started to use 128-character names, in 2000x - 256. Right now I use 320 character names of files because very deep directories do not fit into 256. But debugger does not display long character variables cutting them at pretty small lengths around 100 characters. Would be nice to increase that to 512 bytes.

Also would be great to have in SDBG an option of using a special ruler to know position of each character of long variable like this
Code:

         1         2         3         4         5         6
123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789
