# Limit on number of arguments. Any way around this?

```There seems to be an inherent limit on the maximum number
of arguments that can be passed to a procedure (obviously,
I mean one that allows variable number of arguments in
the first place).  It's about 64.

Can anyone suggest a way to get around this?  We are
running T 3.0 on Apollo 3000's (fix 17).

Sample behaviors:

>>> (apply polygon (iota 64))  ;;; This is from Jim Firby's windows package

;0 Calling POLYGON with arguments (64 63 62 61 60 59 58 57 56 55 54
53 52 51 50 49 48 47 46 45 44 43 42 41 40 39 38 37 36 35 34 33 32
31 30 29 28 27 26 25 24 23 22 21 20 19 18 17 16 15 14 13 12 11 10
9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1)
;0 Returned from POLYGON with values (#{Picture 26 POLYGON})
#{Picture 26 POLYGON}
>>>   (apply polygon (iota 66))

** Error: exceeded maximum number of arguments while applying #{Traced
24 #{Procedure 23 POLYGON}}

>>>>> (apply + (iota 75))

** Error: exceeded maximum number of arguments while applying #{Procedure
>>>>>> (apply + (iota 64))

It's not connected with the explicit APPLY::
