I don't know but I'll guess for starters, Available physical memory.

Watcom gets a little fussy expanding inline functions in C++. Other than
that, there are limits but there fairly high. Adding debugging to compiles
tends to require a lot more memory to generate the object files.

I'm sorry. No I can't. I've never hit them. I know that other people have
and have written about them in this conference or in devtools.

Personally, I don't think that any one module should ever be all that large.
I try to break things up into smaller modules. The resulting link module
can be "almost" as big as you want.
