This variable allows you to set the maximum number of cursors that the run time is allowed to have per file.
The default value for A_ORA_MAX_FILE_CURSORS is 0, meaning that the run time system uses all of the cursors that it can. Because each file must have access to at least two cursors, set this variable to a value greater than 2 if you want to specify a particular value. If all the allotted cursors for a file have been used, the least recently used cursor for that file is freed.
Note that this variable is read only at startup time, and should, therefore, be set in the ACUCOBOL-GT runtime configuration file.
