This is partially incorrect. ndncatchunks/ndnputchunks (collectively
referred to as "chunks") can handle files of arbitrary size. A single Data
packet can be at most 8800 bytes long, so if the file is larger than that,
chunks will split it into segments. You can choose the maximum segment size
using the -s/--size option of ndnputchunks.
