Gets it done.
Works very nicely! The file I was examining was "only" 131MB but I could read it without any trouble. I'm going to recommend it to other people here. My only complaint is that the search function seems a bit touchy.

Good for large text files
Nice. Opened a 800+ Mb log file lickity-split. Lacks bells and whistles but for viewing very large text files it's just what you need. Every other editor choked on my log file. I didn't even notice a performance hit my pc.

Fast load, poor search, no edit
Loaded a 27.5mb file very fast but is slow in searching. In fact search stops well before end of file not findin a string taken from near the end.

very good for TEXT files
Great for viewing large text files, such as apache log, can even search for text.
But do not dare to open large binary files with it, crazy things will happen ;-) Made test on a 100mb file, where the first 99.99MB was 0s and then simple "hello world". It failed to open it, CPU was constantly at 100% load, it allocated and released memory like crazy, but nothing really happened.

opens large files but can't edit them
It could open file up to 1Gb ( I didn't try larger file).
How do I edit the file?
There is no option to edit the text.
Does anybody know how to edit the file or any other editor which will be able
to open such huge files and be able to edit them?
Many thanks for help.

I wish i would have found this program first. I was dealing with a 1.2 GB report. I needed to find strings in the file and couldn't open it, search it, or split it with any programs that i could find. This program is Great!

Wow 40 GB file opened with no problems
I could not find a better editor. I thought I'd never be able to debug the issue as the file was too large.. but this editor did it.

Tried on Vista Business. Worked great on a large file (33M). However, I tried working with a 200M file (Wordnet 3.0 sql export file) and things were much slower - I think the main reason is that the file has very long lines.
Anyway, much better than Notepad, WordPad and Notepad++ when working with large files

This program opened a 400meg mailbox in about a minute! Much better then notepad...

Works but be patient - wait for file to load...
The program crashed on me too but only when I tried to search. I discovered that you have to wait for the entire file to load before searching. Watch the status line at the bottom while it counts the number of lines in the file. In my case the file was 800+ MB, nearly 12 million lines. On a dual core Athlon 64 4400+ it took about a minute (I didn't time it) to load. Once loaded though, I was able to search just fine.
The only thing I didn't like was the text size came out huge. I chose a different font - Lucida Sans Unicode 8 pt - looked a lot better.

I just opened a file that I didn't believe any program would ever be able to open; over 25GB text file with 248,290,728 lines. It took quite some time for it to open, but it had no problems. What’s more, it only used 13Mb of system memory to accomplish this.
I will be putting this on all of my servers. I regularly need to open log files of 100+ Mb and other programs are annoying at best when they take 5 min to open. This program takes moments to open the same files.
Thank you so much for this exelent application.
