    Is the API key length fixed at 40?

    Thank you sir. Is there a definition I can apply which would be correct? Working in C on a microcontroller so saving space is pretty important.

    Be really nice if I had some direction on key length. Is it always < 64 characters? Always < 128? Surely there's some definition in the software? It looks hexadecimal, is that just a coincidence or is it a string of hex values?

    The length of this key may change in the future. For now it seems to be coming in at 40 characters, but we have no logic to say it will always be 40.
    I hope that's somewhat helpful!
