Maximum hex files size?

I have used the search function but cannot find the specific answer to this question.
As our program size grows larger, we are becoming concerned with the size of the .hex file. (Our navigation routine is becoming larger than we expected.) Can someone point us to where we can find what the maximum hex file size is for this year’s controller?:confused:

There is no real limit for hex file size, because it doesn’t directly translate to program usage.

To find the real size and limits, in MPLAB (version 8, but should be similar for earlier versions) go to view->memory usage. You can see both program usage and RAM usage.

Wow, that is exactly what we were looking for!! Thank you!!
