what is the maximum ALT ?

in the htslib api, the number of alleles is 2^16: https://github.com/samtools/htslib/blob/develop/htslib/vcf.h#L221

uint32_t n_info:16, n_allele:16;

how can I know the number of ALT in my vcf? (

 awk -F '\t' '/^[^#]/ {N=split($5,a,/[,]/);printf("%s:%s:%s %d\n",$1,$2,$4,N);}' in.vcf
