RE: File editor for large ifs files



fixed

For eons (going back to DOS) I've used MultiEdit. Works in text or hex,
handles large files, etc.

Ultraedit can handle files of basically unlimited size.

We use the free text editor ConText which can

. handle large files
. save with CRLF or LF which is essential for *IX .sh scripts
. colors your code if doing perl, or other languages

This is a great replacement for the woefully inadequate notepad.

Somewhere between 1.5 and 2.3 gig the EDTF command returns a "Object
is
too
large to process"

Notepad and Notepad++ fail.
