You really need to read up on how virtual memory and process memory works.

Those in GNU Emacs? Experiments seem to indicate that its behaviour is not so easy to predict...

In Mac OS X the swap files are created in a normal formatted file system (HFS+ or HFSX). The first file has 64 MiB, the second as well, the third 128 MiB, the fourth one 256 MiB, the fifth one 512 MiB, and all the others following have each 1 GiB size. It always succeeds to allocate a big chunk of disk space.
