A buffer's size cannot be larger than some maximum, which is defined
by the largest buffer position representable by the @dfn{Emacs integer}
data type. This is because Emacs tracks buffer positions using that
data type. For 32-bit machines, the largest buffer size is 128

Normally, the buffer @samp{*Buffer List*} is not updated automatically when
buffers are created and killed; its contents are just text. If you have
created, deleted or renamed buffers, the way to update @samp{*Buffer

The @samp{*Buffer List*} buffer does automatically update every

The command @code{buffer-menu-other-window} works the same as
@code{buffer-menu}, except that it displays the buffers list in
another window.
