Re: File editor for large ifs files



fixed

As I mentioned before, UltraEdit has 64-bit handling for 4+GB files & works
with only parts of the file in RAM to keep performance & system RAM
requirements in check. It does unicode, programming languages, EBCDIC, and
pretty much anything you could want.

Mac & Linux as well as Windows.

It isn't free but there is a free demo.

Is there a file editor (prefer i based) that can open and edit large

Somewhere between 1.5 and 2.3 gig the EDTF command returns a "Object is

PASE includes vi. If you can figure out how to use it in a screen-at-a-
time 5250 window, it will probably work. It wasn't worth the effort for
me.

On Windoz, I use textpad, which not only can edit files up to 2GB, it has
excellent regular expression support, and source formatting and coloring
via source-type templates. I use it a lot for editing awk, windows
script, nix shell and edi files on a variety of remote file systems. It
can convert seamlessly between PC, nix and Apple line endings and
character sets. It's shareware. It doesn't do EBCDIC though.
