size = %RSIZE[(channel)]
The size of the last record that was read. (i)
(optional) The channel for which to retrieve the numeric value of the terminating character of the last record that was read. (i)
%RSIZE returns the size of the data from the last READ, READS, ACCEPT, GET, or GETS operation, or the last window I/O function.
%RSIZE can be especially useful with the READS statement, because the length of the record that was read can vary. For example, you might use %RSIZE to determine the number of characters read from the terminal to limit the processing of an input record. %RSIZE is equivalent to %RDLEN.
In Synergy .NET, you cannot use %RSIZE in multi‑threaded scenarios where a channel number has not been specified.

The following subroutine reads a specified minimum amount of terminal input. If the input is too short, the prompt and input are cleared from the screen, and input is requested until the minimum length is entered.
