[Numpy-discussion] Largest possible numpy array

How can I know the size of the largest possible 2-D array in numpy, given a
specific 'dtype' and my system memory?

How can one play around with this? Would it help to note that the array
might be say *m* megabytes on disk, say, *n* % sparse?

Also, is there some good literature about the largest possible 2-D arrays on
different computing platforms? Google isn't helping much.
