Is this Python 2 or Python 3? Just throwing a random possibility out
there, could it be that reading it in and converting it to Unicode
text requires more memory than you have?
My recommendation: Unless you actually need to search the whole file
as a single string, iterate over the file instead:
for line in open(filename):
# do something with line
Your loop will execute once for each line in the file.
