Yes it is correct. Array of 10 character element whose length would be 25.

Hi Ksharp,

 

You may be correct, but it also works with DOT.

The $ 25 is saying character Length 25. So the period gets interpreted as a decimal in $ 25. and Length ignores decimal values. If you use Length x $ 25.3 the variable will have a length of 25.
