Max size of a string I can get from a Http.requestText request?

Hello o/

Could you give me a hand again?

What is the max size of a string that I can get from a Http.requestText request? It is truncating.


function searchGoogle(){

    text = (Http.requestText("https://script.google.com/macros/s/AmfycKwbrtui2_R9Ms-T0RdL4sQpz8QaHO7irSdggYls7GD3UV1ZS5Q/exec?param1=" + Utils.encode(star)));


Obs: i've changed the string of the google sheet Im accessing above because the forum is public, but it works fine, it's just truncating.

THank you very much in advance!

The max size of a String literal in Self is 1k.
If the response is XML or JSON you can call requestXML() or requestJSON() and the value will be parsed, so each element can be 1k (so you could split the result into 1k XML elements if you can change the web service).
