    I wouldn't use jedit for 100mb files (for that I use emacs), but if you really must, you need a fast computer, lots of memory, and you need
    edit the script that starts jEdit, and passes this option to the JVM:

    -mx400m

    Preferably you have at least 1gb of RAM too.

    In fact the best thing would be a mode that would not read the entire file, but it would be too much work, because the textarea is not ready for such thing.
    Maybe one day ...
