If you are not looking for workarounds, you'll need to wait for Nonmem
VII to be released.

Subject: [NMusers] 20 variable limit in $INPUT

I am looking for a solution to get around the limit of 20 input
variables in nonmem.
The message you get with more than 20 variables in $INPUT is this:

STOP 4 statement executed

I did not find anything in the archives or on the Web. I recall having
successfully done that in nonmem V, and I think it was about changing
the value of 20 to another value in a few files.
My original naive idea was that this was just a single change to the
SIZES file in nm VI but that seems to not be the case.

To keep the discussion focused, I am not looking for workarounds like
solutions with concatenated values and an indicator variable.
For a change I am trying to get the software to adapt to the user's
needs instead of the usual opposite situation.

Thanks for any pointers.
