The usual limitation is a 64K file size.  How often must you *edit*
(as opposed to view) a larger file?  (I might argue that if you need
to edit program code which is larger than 64K, you need to refactor
your code.)

Microsoft Word for DOS will do this.  Under FreeDOS, this gets me a 60
line screen in the program,  (I haven't encountered anything else that
will do it.)

But it is overkill for a text editor.  There, an 80x50 VGA screen is fine.
