With most new systems running 64-bit operating systems, and many having well over 4 GB of RAM, editors using Scintilla ought to be able to handle very big files now. But it seems Scintilla does not make this easy to do. Can you improve support for large files / 64-bit systems please.
(My specific use case is that I use Notepad++ for editing all text files from small Perl programs and hand-coding HTML/CSS up to inspecting large text-format data files which I'm working with on a database project, however these are now > 1 GB and exceed the size it can handle at present; I'm going to have to switch to another editor such as EmEditor which is not Open Source.)
(Neil, I realise you rejected Large File support before, but that was 9 years ago and needs have moved on since then.)
