Yes, there is a limit to robots.txt file in terms of filesize 500 KB as Vipin points out. A maximum file size may be enforced per crawler. Content which is after the maximum file size may be ignored. Google currently enforces a size limit of 500kb.

Yes, there is a limit of robots.txt file. Google only read 500 KB of robots.txt. Content which is after the maximum file size may be ignored.

Google has a limit of only being able to process up to 500KB of your robots.txt file. This is an important point, if you have a super heavy robots.txt file.

Your robots.txt file must be smaller than 500KB.

Yes right. A maximum file size could be forced per crawler. Content which is behind the utmost file size might be disregard. Google presently implements a size limit of 500 KB.

 Google handles the robots.txt file that allows you to control how Google's website crawlers crawl and index publicly accessible websites. A maximum file size may be enforced per crawler. Content which is after the maximum file size may be ignored. Google currently enforces a size limit of 500 kilobytes (KB).
