Old versions (i.e., anything before 19.29) of Emacs had problems editing
files larger than 8 megabytes. In versions 19.29 and later, the maximum
buffer size is at least 2^27-1, or 134,217,727 bytes, or 132 MBytes.
And in Emacs 22, the maximum buffer size has been increased to

The maximum buffer size on 32-bit machines increased to 256 MBytes in
Emacs 22, and again to 512 MBytes in Emacs 23.2.
Emacs compiled on a 64-bit machine can handle much larger buffers.
