I have created a module that parses a file and returns it's lines using io:get_line/2 and 
  string:tokens/2 functions then i recieve this error when i get to process a 63MB file which has 1 million lines.
   
  Could anyone suggest a proper way to open the file and process it so not to receive the following report.
   
  ./file_token_server.erl:none: internal error in parse_module;
crash reason: {system_limit,[{erlang,spawn,
                                     [erlang,
                                      apply,
                                      [#Fun<epp.0.124065107>,[]]]},
                             {erlang,spawn,1},
                             {epp,open,3},
                             {epp,parse_file,4},
                             {compile,parse_module,1},
                             {compile,'-internal_comp/4-anonymous-1-',2},
                             {compile,fold_comp,3},
                             {compile,internal_comp,4}]}
