    Robot file is the shot file that is only 500 KB. And its use is to allow or stop crawlers to crawl the website.

    I am think that there is no limit but while searching on Google I found one article- in this John Mueller said "Google has a limit of only being able to process up to 500KB of your robots.txt file".

    As of my work experience in SEO there is no limit.
    Below mention website url I am going to share with you which is one of the longer ones that I've seen that's just being used to disallow spiders:

    I don't believe that I've ever seen a size limit listed anywhere.
