How many map units away from a switch/door can a player be standing and still able to use it? (Ignoring Z height.)

I could be wrong, but I seem to be remembering 64 map units from the center of the player.

After a quick test: I can press a switch 63 units from the center of the player (47 from the edge of the bounding box), but not 64 (48) or higher.

How is the distance measured? Same distance in any direction? Or max(x, y)?

In some rare cases you have to be closer than 64 units (even without other linedef blocking the way). Also, you have to be at least one frame within the 64 units before you can use it.
