match_max [-d] [-i spawn_id] [size]

Arguments Description
-d  With the -d flag, the default size is set.  (The initial default is 2000.) 
-i spawn_id The size is set for the named spawn id, otherwise it is set for the current process.
size Set the new buffer size

While reading output, more than 2000 bytes can force earlier bytes to be “forgotten”.  This may be changed with the function match_max.  (Note that excessively large values can slow down the pattern matcher.) 

If patlist is full_buffer, the corresponding body is executed if match_max bytes have been received and no other patterns have matched. 

Whether or not the full_buffer keyword is used, the forgotten characters are written to expect_out(buffer).
