Error:"constant string too long",

Hi all,

I'm trying to process a String that is approx 200,000 characters long. I know this is a huge 'string' but it is actually a representation of a document.

When I try to process this in JAVA I get the error

"java:6: constant string too long".

Is there an 'object' class along the lines of 'int' which is extended to 'long' for the string class?

Any help is much appreciated.

Wouldn't that be 128kb? That seems a strange size. Where is this defined o?
