Prior to Synergy/DE 9.3.1, a GETRFA or RFA qualifier variable that exceeded 6 bytes was allowed. As of 9.3.1 and the introduction of GRFAs, however, if the size of a GETRFA or RFA argument is anything other than 6 or 10 bytes, an “Invalid record’s file address” error ($ERR_INVALRFA) is generated. Setting system option #56 turns off this behavior and causes all RFAs that exceed 6 bytes to be treated as 6-byte RFAs.
