These are compiler options with respect to subscript out of range checking.

NOSSRANGE is the default and if chosen, no run time error will be flagged if your index or subscript goes out of the permissible range.

SSRANGE: If the program is compiled with SSRANGE option, then any attempt to refer an area outside the region of the table will abnormally terminate with protection exception, usually S0C4.It also avoids any meaningless operation on reference modification like negative number in the starting position of reference modification expression. If the program is compiled with NOSSRANGE, then the program may proceed further with junk or irrelevant data. So usually the programs are compiled with SSRANGE during development and testing.
