Text Editor for very big file - Windows
Are there any text editors/viewers (preferably on windows but other platforms are also ok) that can handle files of 500 MB or more?
The editors I checked so far (Notepad++, Notepad, Eclipse) all choked on files of that size.
I tried gvim as it was the top voted and was available on Windows. I opened the file in a reasonable time. After that scrolling and searching was very smooth as long as syntax highlighting was turned off.
From the other editors mentioned TextPad and EmEditor both claim to be able to handle large files very well. EmEditor seems to be built exactly for editing large files.
I'll probably try both and report back.
