What is the maximum file size BuildVu can handle?

BuildVu is written in Java and as such needs to work within the boundaries of the programming language. We use a mixture of longs and int values for positions in a file, which means the largest value we can use is the maximum int value (2^32 - 1).

Therefore the maximum theoretical file size that BuildVu can support is around 2.14 Gigabytes (2147483647 bytes).
