Sir:

Not good news:

% There is no specific limit on file size with VEEDOC, though of course
   available system memory is a concern.

% According to the lab guys, the error message means VEEDOC found a
   VEE construct it did not understand and which blew its simple little
   mind.

% Furthermore, VEEDOC was a rather poorly-implemented tool and was strongly
   prone to such errors.  As of VEE 3.2, much more effective functionality
   was incorporated in VEE as the File->Save Documentation menu selection.
   No further work on VEEDOC itself is planned.

Not sure where to go from here, sir.  Please stay in touch.
