What is the maximum size that can be stored in a PHP session?



You can store as much data as you like within in sessions. All sessions are stored on the server. The only limits you can reach is the maximum memory a script can consume at one time, which by default is 128MB.

If a column is set to AutoSize, PHPExcel attempts to calculate the column width based on the calculated value of the column (so on the result of any formulae), and any additional characters added by format masks such as thousand separators.

By default, this is an estimated width: a more accurate calculation method is available, based on using GD, which can also handle font style features such as bold and italic; but this is a much bigger overhead, so it is turned off by default. You can enable the more accurate calculation using


However, autosize doesn't apply to all Writer formats... for example CSV. You don't mention what writer you're using.

But you also need to identify the columns to set dimensions:

foreach(range('B','G') as $columnID) {

$objPHPExcel->getActiveSheet()->getColumnDimension() expects a column ID.

$objPHPExcel->getActiveSheet()->getColumnDimensions() will return an array of all the defined column dimension records; but unless a column dimension record has been explicitly created (perhaps by loading a template, or by manually calling getColumnDimension()) then it won't exist (memory saving).

You might need to read up on the length of the max concat here.

Command-Line Format        --group_concat_max_len=#
Option-File Format         group_concat_max_len
Option Sets Variable       Yes, group_concat_max_len
Variable Name              group_concat_max_len
Variable Scope  Global, Session

Dynamic Variable           Yes
  -- Permitted Values
Platform Bit Size          32
Type                       numeric
Default                    1024
Range                      4 .. 4294967295

  -- Permitted Values
Platform Bit Size          64
Type                       numeric
Default                    1024
Range                      4 .. 18446744073709547520

Edit: I find it rather amusing that the string that is returned to you is 1024 in length - which just happens to be the default max length in mysql. Coincedence?

You can check the layout of the struct by using offsetof, but it will be something along the lines of:

struct B
    unsigned char c;  // +8 bits
    unsigned char pad[3]; //padding
    unsigned int bint; //your b:1 will be the first byte of this one
} b;

Now, it is obvious that (in a 32-bit arch.) the sizeof(b) will be 8, isn't it?

The question is, why 3 bytes of padding, and not more or less?

The answer is that the offset of a field into a struct has the same alignment requirements as the type of the field itself. In your architecture, integers are 4-byte-aligned, so offsetof(b, bint) must be multiple of 4. It cannot be 0, because there is the c before, so it will be 4. If field bint starts at offset 4 and is 4 bytes long, then the size of the struct is 8.

Another way to look at it is that the alignment requirement of a struct is the biggest of any of its fields, so this B will be 4-byte-aligned (as it is your bit field). But the size of a type must be a multiple of the alignment, 4 is not enough, so it will be 8.

The standard says that SIZE_MAX must be at least 65535.

It specifies no upper bound, and gcc's implementation is perfectly valid.

Quoting the reference you cited (emphasis added):

Its implementation-defined value shall be equal to or greater in magnitude (absolute value) than the corresponding value given below, with the same sign.
