QUERYBOX /L support seems to only partially work

May 16, 2017
I was trying to input a large string using QUERYBOX.
Using QUERYBOX with no /L seems to truncate input to 254 characters.
Using QUERYBOX /Ln with n>256 appears to accept a larger string but the variable only contains the 1st 254 characters.
INPUT appears to work with orr without /L just fine.

How can I use QUERYBOX to input a string larger than 254 characters?

I am using TCC 24.02.50 x64
