puertoblack2003,

Not many text editors know how to deal with very large files. Most of them want to load them in memory before displaying them which is not always possible with large files.

So far, Baretail http://www.baremetalsoft.com/baretail/ is what we find useful for viewing large files. Some shareware text editors have also that capability (+editing large files).
