How big a file depends on memory available. How many
taxa/samples/individuals in your data file?
When you say "choke", what do you mean? It gives an out of memory error?
Have you tried increasing memory allocated to Mesquite? (See the
file startingMesquiteAndMemoryAllocation.txt in Mesquite_Folder).
